We are having an issue with false registrations on a DNN site.  The site is upgraded to version 7.0.4.  After we first started noticing this issue, we activated the CAPTCHA feature on registration and we are still getting these false registrations.  The come in regularly and continuously and look software generated, so we are assuming this is a bot.

Are there any known backdoors to registration or has the default CAPTCHA been compromised?

Any help is this area would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Yeah, not a great issue, but it is good to hear that the DNN crew is aware of the issue and we will work on some mitigation.

Thank you for you quick response!
