Hi,
I have CSRF Protection Extension installed in version 3.0.2.0 and am still getting at least one fake account every few days. I have noticed that the account set up never has an address? how can this happen when any proper customer has to enter an address to set up an account?
Any ideas please?
As I said many times on the topic before, this extension does NOT prevent SPAM!

It simply kicks out the CSRF bots sitting behind the HTML forms. Re-Captcha V3 is still needed to work with it so that Re-Captcha doesn't have to work with many sitting-by bots awaiting for a user.

Hi All.

Hello, it is available for 1.5? On download link I see it only for 2.x and 3.x.

There are no promises with v1.5x releases with CSRF protection due to an older use of Encryption library from Opencart as compared to OC v3.x releases.

Hi,
I get fake registrations every day. But CSRF Protection is bit complicated for newbie. Please help me if I am doing steps right.
I am using OC 3.0.3.2

I placed csrf.xml in /public_html/catalog/language/en-gb/extension/vqmod/xml and csrf_helper.php in /public_html/system/helper/ folder

Then I edited and put

Code: Select all

 <form 
{% if csrf_form_input %}
{{ csrf_form_input }}
{% endif %} action="{{ action }}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" class="form-horizontal">
in /public_html/catalog/view/theme/default/template/account/register.twig

But in which file should I put this?

Code: Select all

$csrf = new Csrf();
$csrf->csrf_start($this->registry);
$data['csrf_form_input'] = $csrf->csrf_form_input();
I tried in /public_html/catalog/controller/account/register.php but it does not look the right one.

Please use code tags!

You are referring to an older version of the extension. Please use the latest one.

I downloaded extension yesterday. CRSF30.zip, updated on Mar, 29 2018. I guess it is latest version. Did I copied files to right place though?

The latest extension version only requires the use of VQMod.

It's on the first post of this topic already. If you're asking this remark / question, it means you haven't read the description of this extension either from the forum or on the Marketplace.
[29-03-2018] - The CSRF helper has been improved with a more stronger algorithm form or string for better protection and also PHP 7+ compatibility.

[20-03-2018] - CSRF Support Forum topic updated by providing instructions for multiple social login free extensions.

[25-02-2018] - CSRF v3.2 for OC v2.x and v3.x releases

Thanks to the forum user: neelgajjar addressing that the latest CSRF release no longer creates flooded registration. All back to normal with v2.x releases, according to his feedback.

I certainly have downloaded from same page. 100%. but you are saying it is not a latest version.

There is nowhere to be said about not being the latest release. As per the updated date on the Marketplace, no updates have been made since last time since there is no need to. As per my above quote:
[25-02-2018] - CSRF v3.2 for OC v2.x and v3.x releases
It is already indicated that CSRF has been tested on both release series.

Finally managed to get this sorted. Installed VQMOD Manager and Copied

csrf.xml in /public_html/vqmod/xml
csrf_helper.php in /public_html/system/helper

then edited csrf.xml and added below code

Code: Select all

<file name="catalog/controller/common/header.php" error="skip">
<operation error="skip">
<search position="before"><![CDATA[$data['scripts']]]></search>
<add><![CDATA[
$this->load->helper('csrf_helper');

csrf_start();
]]></add>
</operation>
</file>
now I am able to see csrf value in my main page as

<form action="https://mitrecyclers.com/index.php?rout ... y/currency" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="form-currency"><input type="hidden" name="__csrf" value="XXXXXXRANDOMXXXXX">

Is that all? or do I have to do something further. Thanks.

You can be ensured this will definitely stop the spamming on your site.

So I'm a little confused. Will this extension stop spam registrations and enquiries? If not, can you recommend a solution that does? I'd rather not enable captcha for users but if I must I must.

What it means is the Captcha form will prevent spammers as much as it can to successfully submit the values from an HTML form but it will not prevent scripts on remaining behind the forms while the CSRF Form protection may not help to submit values without Captcha or Re-Captcha but will kick the scripts behind the forms while these twos prevents submissions.

Thanks for the extension, straightlight! Installed it on OC v3.0.3.2 today. One little question, does it work well with Basic Captcha?
