A utility module that secures forms from abuse by bot's by requiring input of numeric challenge or image based text challenge known as CAPTCHA


The Xarigami Formantibot module is an enhanced version of the Xaraya Formantibot module by Carl P. Corliss (aka Rabbitt).

Formantibot can be used to secure forms by requiring the user to input a response to a challenge, in this case an image based text into a field prior to form submission or numeric entry in response to a simple arithmetic test.
