    Protect any Joomla! 1.6 forms with CAPTCHA. SecurityImages has been written a long time ago,  born in 2004, first running under Mambo then rapidly Joomla! 1.0, 1.5 till today in Joomla! 1.6

    For all those that still don’t know what a CAPTCHA is:

    A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam. No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.

    Limitations

    1. Only register Joomla! 1.6 form is protected by the captcha for now. This is because not all Joomla! 1.6 forms are using JForm Fields. I hope to see all forms rapidly migrated in later version (Joomla! 1.6.1???)
    2. Currently my own captcha engine: HNCaptcha, Calculator and Core are not migrated and thus not supported. They are anyway outdated.
