We have recently been swamped with SPAM bots on our website and specifically our client’s measured survey portal.
We have now included reCaptcha from Google and we have added additional checks which will force certain user submission to be parked until they pass through the recaptcha checks. Our mail system and database was overwhelmed with the number of SPAM.
Since we’ve implemented the update we’ve seen an immediate stop to the SPAM submissions.
I will continue to monitor the submissions and add additional rules to block these submissions.
