I always dislike doing this (changing core file of Joomla!) but here they ARE...
- Allow login views, login modules, register, lost password, lost user account and contact section to be protected by SecurityImages
- Are for Joomla! 1.5.1 only and SecurityImages 5.0.0Beta2
- 14 files has been altered, mostly views, and com_contact/com_user controller, click on picture below for more details
- Download file Joomla_1.5.1-Stable-Full_PackageForSecurityImages5.0.0.zip (33kB) and overwrite file on your server
Report all bugs in the forums in the new section
Below are some screen shots of the BETA2 in Joomla! 1.5 in action
To switch these patches ON/Off, go to the Global Configuration page as seen in the screen shot below
You want to customize the error message? then edit the file language\en-GB\en-GB.com_user.ini and change the key
SECURITYIMAGES REJECT USER ENTRY=Invalid Captcha word, Please enter the correct value you see in picture
SECURITYIMAGES LABEL=Anti-spamming protection:
On a per user/contact basis, a new switch is available:
Customize labels, keys are in language\en-GB\en-GB.mod_login.ini
and in module
Patches for administrator area are missing because the plugin SecurityImages in front end start a session that is different from the backend. I will for sure find a way to get around it. In between I recommend You to use htaccess login to enhance admin login protection and reduce brute force attacks.
