Anti Bot: Unrecognizable Form v1.1
This MOD make a fake Form and make unrecognizable (for bots) the real Form.
|Compatible With:||SMF 1.1.X - SMF 2 Beta & RC1|
|Initial Release:||2nd May 2009|
The bots will use the "fake Form" and the humans the "real Form".
Your users will not notice the difference, and the bots receive a error message for sidetrack.
How to test this MOD?
1.- Open the form to register a new user (not send).
2.- Installing the MOD.
3.- Send the form opened in the step 1. (and see the "error message")
4.- Now send a form opened after installing the MOD. (and register without problem)
Why? The bots will continue using the "old form", the form SMF's by default.
Extra: How it works?
Quote from: Karl Benson
It is a cat and mouse game between forum software and bot-creators to secure forums against spam bots.
Using generic/centralised anti-spam measures makes it viable for bot-creators to try to get past them.
If every forum employs completely different anti-bot measures it makes it almost impossible to create bots for mass-automated registration.
