Yo,

I'm not sure if the VGTU project admins have noticed yet, but there is a significant quantity of bots signing up for the project and creating teams full of spam text. Some of these team descriptions have links to external websites which may be malicious.

It would be worth implementing recaptcha on user sign-up, it's pretty easy to do.

You might need to delete the spam accounts too, there may be a script for this in the ops panel.

Cheers.

Thank you for your message.

I have activated reCAPTCHA system for our project web site.

However, bots are signing up not through a web site. Currently, as I understand, it is not considered as a major problem.

Note for all users: to clean up the project's database from such spam accounts, I will periodically remove all accounts without assigned hosts.

Regards
