shoutbox getting spammed despite CAPTCHA

Posted:24 Jun 2009 (18:20 UTC)
My shoutbox has been getting spammed even with the CAPTCHA. I found the spammer's ip listed at:

www.projecthoneypot.org/ip_114.127.246.36

so it appears the CAPTCHA can be defeated robotically?

After I blocked this ip address via my .htaccess file the same spammer started spamming my shoutbox via Tor, so I banned all of Tor's Onion Router addresses per the list at iblocklist.com

I'm still getting spammed every time new Tor servers become available--about every three days. Is there some way to to make the CAPTCHA more difficult to automatically read?

eHa - you fixed this by using the newer CAPTCHA ?
