Title: Need some new security questions...
Post by: ProdigySim on December 19, 2014, 01:53:44 pm
Apparently our current set of security questions isn't doing enough to stop spambots, so it's time to come up with some new ones.

Soo, why not crowdsource? We're looking for any fairly-easy-to-answer questions relating to l4d that we can prompt users for at registration time.

Our current questions are:
Which non-tank playable SI has the most HP in L4D2?
Which non-tank playable SI has the least HP in L4D2?
Which L4D2 campaign features clowns and carnival games?
Which L4D1 campaign has the survivors try to reach a Hospital?
Which L4D2 campaign features hotel, gun shop, and mall settings?

Suggestions for new ones?

Jacob is helping buy meats, for grilling, for the L4D2 Community Picnic. He bought 10 pounds of sausage at $1.69 per pound, 100 pounds of hamburgers at $1.99 pound, 1,000 pounds of hot dogs at $2.09 per pound, and 100 pounds of chicken at $3.69 per pound. Which of the items he bought cost the most?

Source: Common Core Math Standards. Take that, spambots!

I do not believe this is a spambot. His real IP is 5.164.210.55, which is a legit russian IP, belonging to an ISP for physical(natural) persons. Also, in no way it would be able to circumvent the captcha verification that I've made stricter earlier today. Unless it is not a bot to begin with.

Well, captchas are pretty much all broken unless you're using recaptcha. As far as the questions, it's not unfathomable that someone is building a database of forum question answers and we got plopped into it. But if we want to bypass cloudflare and ban the IP I'm down with that (or somehow enable secondary IP banning?)

Thanks for these suggestions. I've cobbled together a new set of questions. Let's see how it goes.
