    Classipress - Spam attacks on sign up page

    Hi AppThemes,

    Our Classipress install is experiencing spam email problems and our hosting provider has stopped all email services on the server until the problem is fixed, their comment is below...

    ===

    Your Wordpress Classipress theme site is experiencing a large number of automated fake account creations and, as a result, is sending out lots of account creation confirmation emails to various email addresses. You will need to take some immediate action to prevent this abuse. For example, you should ensure that your account creation page has a CAPTCHA to prevent automated bots from using it.

    ===

    Can you recommend a CAPTCHA plugin that can be integrated with your classipress theme please to fix all this?
