    Resolving a spamming issue caused by spambots

    Hi everyone!

    Due to multiple spam reports that we have been receiving recently from our Customers we found a loophole in our software and here is a solution that will help you prevent bots from spamming on your site:

    1. open and edit the following file: /includes/classes/rlAccount.class.php
    2. find a string below (line ~980):
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    3. replace it with a line below:
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    4. save the changes
    5. open and edit the following file: /includes/controllers/registration.php
    6. find a string below (line ~143):
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    7. and post the following code below the line above
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    8. save the changes

    Feel free to ask your questions in the thread.

    Hello John,

    I was unenable to find this line of code: if ( $security_code != $_SESSION['ses_security_code'] || empty($_SESSION['ses_security_code']) ) in the file: /includes/classes/rlAccount.class.php.

    Also what is the different between this line of code: if ( $security_code != $_SESSION['ses_security_code'] || empty($_SESSION['ses_security_code']) ) and this: if ( $security_code != $_SESSION['ses_security_code'] || empty($_SESSION['ses_security_code']) ).

    Unless if im getting it wrong. Sorry im no coder or programmer.

    Thanks

    Hello Chukwudi,
    Yep you are right, the first and the second conditions are the same, it was my bad.
    I have updated the first line, now you can find it in the file.
