Enhanced Image Captcha - 3.7.x
آخرین زمان حضور: Feb 2017
Title : Enhanced Image Captcha
Version : 2.2b
Coder : Andy Calderbank & Jason Williams
Purpose : Add extra Image Verification to the registration process, using an alternative system to the Captcha system.
The Enhanced Image Captcha system is a unique system using images versus text to stop spammers signing up to your forum. The script automatically detects images and uses the filename as the title, making adding new images extremely simple. To further improve security, the images are passed through a script which means that none of the images on the screen have file names - and cannot be associated to the question by title alone - and cannot be viewed by trying to access the images directly.
Please note, there is a .htaccess file within the images directory, to keep security tight, this must be kept, without it bots are able to scan the images and make a match, I understand not every server can utilist .htaccess but cannot get around this.
Important : This has been tested on 3.7 and 3.6.2 - as far as I know this should be backwards and forwards compatible.
PLEASE NOTE - THIS HAS BEEN RELEASED AS A BETA VERSION AS THE SCRIPT HAS BEEN MOVED AND I NEED TO GAUGE FEEDBACK BEFORE GOING TO A FULL VERSION.
My thanks go to all the guys who have helped with this, all the suggestions and feedback, all has been take on board and where necessary included in this new version - members in particular are : King Kovifor, Danny.VBT, Lynne and RCK.
Also thanks to ogameclub for the Turkish translated version.
I must thank Opserty too for their hard work in making me understand where I was going wrong!!
