    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    I set up an image gallery for a website I did for my daughters preschool. It is getting a lot of spam registrations.

    I want to know if someone can tell me the tool that is doing it or it may be custom.

    every registration is 4 random letters followed by 3 random numbers like "rstu652"

    I need to change what it searches for to find it.

    This is run by the teacher of the class, and I would like to make it a bit easier on her if I can.

    It may a software such as Xrumer perhaps but cant say for sure.

    I would incorporate some form of anti spam measure, or a question and answer box and ask what a certain word is on the first page to allow the registration to continue thus helping eliminate spammy signups.

    Hope this helps.

    I already require info about the student they are registering for, so no "spam" accounts gets approved.
