I manage a biker webpage that uses Matt's [url removed, login to view] ([url removed, login to view]). It is getting spammed more often and they are getting more aggressive at the posts. I wish to stop the spam. I have discovered FirstProductions "humantest" ([url removed, login to view]) that offers a [url removed, login to view] to access a perl script captcha.pl. The [url removed, login to view] currently uses [url removed, login to view], MD5, and other packages to create a graphic code pic and you have to enter what you see. We have webhosting thru [url removed, login to view] that uses an unknown flavor of UNIX - probably without these supporting packages to create the files. I don't have to use this particluar software but I need a spam stopper and allow human entries only before getting to the wwwboard.html. A simpler version of [url removed, login to view] that uses internal functions such as the rand() function of perl to select 1 of a half-dozen pre-created pictures of codes (.png or .jpg) and match the human entry to it before allowing access to wwwboard/[url removed, login to view] is an idea I am at right now. If you can patch the [url removed, login to view] to do this I would be very happy. The codes and picture/file names can be hardcoded into the perl program or read into it from a web unaccessable file as I don't think the perl program code it is accessable from the web. (However, I am not a genius at this stuff.) Then I can then change them on an infrequent basis to keep security up alittle. Got a better idea? What do you suggest?
