spam in trac

Issue #2197 closed
Roland Haas created an issue

There were two instances today of our trac system being used for spam delivery (by putting an email address into the CC field).

I have deleted both of them.

The CAPTCHA system is in place and requires that one passes Googles ReCAPTCHA but apparently this is not enough.

Note that not only are we ourselves exposed to spam but also our server is seen as sending Spam to the email addresses in CC.

    This was discussed in today's ET call. I have added a warning to the Trac main page about not being able to create tickets anymore unless logged in.
