Hi all,


Unfortunately we have a lot of spam attacks. We already set up a honeypot field and also use a captcha field, but the spam go also through.

At the moment we use a smartlist which are delete all leads without a captcha token.
Anyway the system has to create "every minute" a lead and deleted it after that again. It's blow the database for a moment and also takes performance of the system.


I have also the feeling that the spammer takes the embed form link for do their spam attacks. So that the captcha javascript solution doesn't work.


I think, it would be create idea to block a general IP for all marketing activities.


Do you have similiar experiences? Or do you have maybe a better solution?


Thanks a lot
