    Default How to block spammy "customers?"

    Hello,
    From time to time, I am checking the "customers".
    Almost daily I have a "new customer" as the following example from today:
    Street Address: Маkе Mоney 10000$ Рer Dаy With Вitсoin: ***LINK REMOVED***
    Suburb: #file_links["C:Frazes.txt",1,N]:

    The questions are:
    How can they become "customers" without registering? (as I don't receive registration mail).
    How can I block them, as it looks very serious to me?

    Please take a look of what I mean: example of 2 sites:
    http://www.6tem.fr/2020/01/25/file_l...inks-txt1n-37/
    http://nahko.com/fan_intentions/file...ting-txt1n-10/

    Those sites are not mine, but it looks that they were hacked by using the above method...
    Thanks in advance,
    Ridgh

    These look like WordPress sites.

    But as for Zen Cart, you can look at mods that add checks to forms like registration - start with this one perhaps:

    zenNonCAPTCHA

    Thank you very much swguy,
    I haven't checked those sites, as the way they look scarred me! I made a search at Google, using this string, and I got them as results...

    As I've mentioned, all the "customers" that register, ZC sends me an email that announces me that a new customer registers. This time, and other similar times that I got similar strings, there were no announcements.

    Thanks a lot for the link, I am going to check it in a few minutes.
    I'll never know how much I don't know...
