Hi,

Have anyone experienced this. My site is under attack and something is creating accounts over accounts with false email addresses. I am being swamped by bounding emails and account creation notifications.

Does anyone found a way to solidify the account creation process ? As it is now, I have renamed the store_new_account.php file so it cannot be accessed anymore. But seems some more have been able to go through. I dont know where to look further to block those. The site is unusable now and I have closed it for customers :(

Thanks for any help or information you can provide...
Benoit

For the time being, I have added some validation code in "store_cart_actions.php" to check the validity of the phone number provided (which was part of the problem) and making sure the last_name do not contain invalid text, such as "http". The changes were made real fast and not in the best way, but I just hope it allows my site run again.

It might be something worth adding for future update : adding more robust checks on input fields, especially with account creation.

Any thoughts on the subject ?

hi guys, and thanks.

I do use reCaptcha one my other sites. I was not aware that Sytist added its support. Good thing. However, I am still on 3.7, hence I do not have this update since it was added with 3.9.

It is not a free upgrade as I understand it, right ?

It's a free upgrade within the first year. Then after that it is a paid upgrade for $99 which also includes a year of updates.
