Login Verification
« on: February 22, 2011, 02:22:33 PM »
Link to Mod

This mod adds security verification to the login page.
The settings in admin panel > security and moderation > anti-spam apply.
In addition, the mod adds logging in SMF error log for a few errors it didn't log before.

Please set security questions rather than Captcha, to protect better against bots.

Note: currently, once verification is activated for registration and login pages, the mod will not allow login through quick login anymore, the user will be directed instead to the full login page, with the message "This forum requires verification".

Changelog:
1.1 Add security verification to login pages for mobile users.
1.0 First version. Add security verification to login pages.

Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).

Except that it would have to be totally rewritten for 1.1.x since there isn't a centralised system for creating CAPTCHAs in 1.1.x, while there is in 2.0.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

ok, but looking to my security login table, it's needed, and a lack of smf script. Using email to login will disturb the normal members.

This is no critic to all people who developing modifications  ;)

I have installed the mod today hoping to chase away bots. I enabled all checkmarks for verification and set up a security question but the bots blew right by.  7 messages in a half day. I must be missing something with security. Forum here: http://videotolifeproductions.com/Public_Forum/index.php [nofollow]

Is there something I can do to fix this?

Well, it mostly depends on the questions you're using...
I just peeked at your registration and I see no questions there. Captcha is more is less useless

Thanks I was wondering how good captcha was.  I went ahead and added a question. However I did notice that even though I have the "disable administration security" disabled but I still have to go through Captcha.

Should this not have stopped asking me for Captcha?

No, that only stops SMF from asking your password when you enter ACP after 1h if last access.

Newbie here, let me see if I understand. ACP means? administrator something, and only after an hour of being inactive would it ask me to verify again.

 However I can log out and and log in as admin and I still have to captcha and do the questions... but worth it to stop the bots.

Would be nice to stop admin from security checks.

Ah, those are different things.
It's one thing to log you into the forum, it's another thing you have to re type your password (just the password!!!) to get to your admin panel.

I never used the mod but I assume that you always have to do the verification. I mean... If you are logging in, he has no idea who is logging in.
