Open threads with characters in Chinese / japanese !!! IDK ?? you ??

  • While i was looking my forum. i reloaded the page and i found this strange thing:
    (a strange user that open threads with japanese or chinese characters)
    Someone can explain me what it is? or just how he can do it? i need asap a solution for this
    Thanks in advance for the replies..

  • I've had the same issue now on 2 seperate occasions and am using google recaptcha on my forums. I'm curious to know if anyone can recommend some other anti spam measures.


    Actually I just checked the reCaptcha site and saw this notice for my website. Looks like their might be a coding issue with 3.1 where it isn't verifying the reCaptchas correctly, I didn't have this problem before on 3.0


  • I've had this happen on about 10 seperate occasions in the last 24 hours. Is anyone looking into the apparent issues with reCAPTCHA integration or should I be looking at different forum software?

  • Do you use reCAPTCHAV2 or Invisible reCAPTCHA?

    Thanks for the response, I'm using reCAPTCHAV2. I tried the invisible reCAPTCHA as well and had the same issue. I created a new reCAPTCHAV2 and then put the public and private keys in the Woltlab admin panel and am still having the same issue. I've finally had to set registrations to have to be approved by admins.


    I find it interesting in that article they say that the cause for the error I see in my reCAPTCHA account says "This happens if you have issues with response verification at later stage e.g. your own website fails to properly process returned response from Google, when reCaptcha response test actually pass"


    I'm not having issues with people not getting through, but bots getting through like crazy. I never had this issue in 3.0 so I'm wondering if it's a coding issue with 3.1. Thanks for posting that link, I'll keep reading that article.

    possibly your server does not allow outbound connections (any longer). Do you have any errors logged in your WoltLab Suite error log?

    Just a couple SCSS errors from when I was playing around trying to make my header image responsive. Other than that nothing I can see that would be related.

  • Hi


    I assume that these threads have been created by an automated spambot. I recommend to ban the user and delete the threads.

    Still i've got today this problem, do you know how to block them?
    If I delete the users they continue to spam...

    Seems like it's a Google problem. Had the same message shown with phpBB as well. Seems if you refresh the image shown to you too many times now trying to get an easier one to solve, it blocks you for a day as spammer.
