Is There a Built-In Mechanism to Deter Spam (Bot) Customer Registration? (Doc ID 2164629.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 31, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Logging shows indications of hundreds of undeliverable e-mail messages from bots registering as customers on the production site.

Why does this happen? Is it possible to prevent this behavior?

This is an example of the false e-mail addresses being registered: 9adhfjkads6@domain.com

What could be causing this?
