    Web Form Security

    First I am have a web page that is hosted on a Linux server, I use the Perl program FormMail to allow visitors to sign up and request items. The problem I am currently experiencing is that a bot has discovered the form and is submitting 20 - 40 requests a day (which gets sent to my email address). Is there a CAPTCHA program in PHP that will function with FormMail? A friend suggested Captcha at webwhizguide.com but the program does not work with FormMail and it is WIndows based. thanks in advance - shihalud

    From the FormMail website, it appears to me that they already offer a captcha service: see FormMail.com - HTML Form Processor :: CAPTCHA Spam Blocker.

    That is the service that you can use - am using the open source program FormMail. I was just wondering is there a PHP or cgi program available for the CAPTCHA function that I can use in conjunction with the FormMail program?

    Captcha Creator - PHP Script Package claims to work with Matt's FormMail - see the FAQ. It's not free, though.

    You could try this service from Microsoft while it's still free: Captcha superseded by cats?
