Joomla 2.5 spam registration - help!!

I have Joomla 2.5 installed on my friend's website. I am receiving 100+ registration each day using fake email addresses. I am fed up with this. Is there anyway to block them?



I just found, Joomla 2.5 comes with built-in ReCpatcha plugin. This allows you to protect the Joomla registration and contact forms from spam bots.

The plugin can be managed from the Joomla 2.5 admin area ->  Extensions -> Extension Manager -> Plug-in Manager ->Captcha – ReCaptcha.

You can obtain the API keys from http://google.com/recaptcha and enter them in the Public and Private Key fields. Save the configuration.
