AuthCaptcha for Joomla

Introduction

Captcha, Login protection, Access & Security, Site Security, Security Tools

A BruteForce attack is a major security risk to any website. In this type of attack, a hacker tries to guess a user's password with millions of requests. Especially weak passwords are vulnerable to this type of attack. In addition, a BruteForce attack can cause availability issues.


Joomla has no built-in BruteForce protection. This Joomla System plugin fills this gap by adding a captcha challenge to all Joomla login forms. It slows down the attack considerably and therefore prevents it.

  • It works with the default Joomla login-component, the default Joomla login-module and the administrator page.
  • Tested with the recaptcha-plugins shipped by Joomla.

Joomla 4 ready!
