Hi, I had already done that – deleted the plugin, requested the update and installed this new updated version. However, the sign ups continued. But – have now done it again.
I have also checked all file permissions and they appear to be correct – 755 for folders and 644 for files.
Is there a way to do a bulk delete of all the spam signups. Deleting individually is too time consuming, especially now that there are 400+ spam entries to delete.
Thanks again,August 28, 2011 at 11:48 pm in reply to: Many spam user signups (how to prevent spam signup) #35894
I also am unable to sign up without entering the Captcha. I fear there must be some way hackers have added a script or something to a page within the site as over 300 signups since reactivating the plugin over past 24 hours.
I am not sure what to do next.

Thanks for looking into this for me. I have reactivated the plugin and the sign up page is [http://fengshui-thesecrets.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-affiliate-platform/affiliates/login.php]
Muchly appreciated!August 27, 2011 at 2:05 am in reply to: Many spam user signups (how to prevent spam signup) #35890
The spam sign ups are to the affiliate program. They all appear in the affiliate member list. They have not signed up to newsletter or any other optins on the site or wordpress. Only to the affiliate program.
Now that I have deactivated the plugin again, the sign ups have stopped. However, if , as before, I reactivate the plugin, the sign ups resume.
Not sure if this helps at all.
Thanks so much – seems to have done the trick!
