40K form submissions

    We used 2 Jotform forms on our site (removed this morning). In the past 2-3 days, we've received 40K spam form reports. By adding a capcha and "strict" on unique submissions, do you think this will eliminate whatever script was sending those emails? Are there any other precautions we can take? 

    We're the web dev company and have used Jotform on many sites. Do we need to go back and fix those forms? 

    Can you tell if those spams were coming through your servers or bypassing them?

    Any other suggestions to make the forms more secure before we put them back online?

    CAPTCHA should prevent this.

    I do not see the form on your account. What was the form URL?

    Can you forward me the full source of one of the emails so I can see if the emails are from our servers or not?
