Posted: 2011-01-24, 00:15 New login security measures
Last days we have received many complaints regarding bots trying to break into your accounts and causing forum security mechanism to temporarily (for 40 min) block the account. Attacks come from many different IPs.
To ensure that your accounts are safe and keep bots from triggering blocking mechanism, we introduce a CAPTCHA check for logging in. It's very simple, basically the same as used for registration and posting without registration. You just have to type "VCMI" to the new field in the login form. It should do the trick, until better solution is implemented.
I'm sorry for inconvenience but that's certainly better that being bombarded with mails about failed login attempts.
If you encounter any difficulties accessing your forum account, please write me (tow AT vcmi DOT eu).
_________________ VCMI is a work in progress.
VCMI is NOT an another mod.

Can't register. CAPTCHA don't show pictures.
Tested on chromium and firefox, so seems like a forum problem.
Can you check it?

Tested on chromium and firefox...
Just curious, did you post the above with chromium or firefox? Because the forum shows it as safari, so we might need some further fine tuning of the browser recognition. :p
_________________ Tips for testers:
- Check the bugs already reported in the BUGTRACKER, to avoid creating dupes
- Check the ITEM IMPLEMENTATION STATUS lists, to avoid reporting as “bug” a feature not yet ready for testing
- If you feel the devs should prioritize a certain feature implementation, please add it to the Missing features & functionalities thread.
- Enjoy! :)
