Two Hot Fixes for Spam Prevention

Two New Configuration Changes to CCCApply

While work continues on the long-term spam filter web service utility, which is still under-development and due to be released to production in June, we are implementing two additional pre-submission stop-gap services to further prevent fraud in CCCApply in the meantime.

Similar to the block we implemented in January 2018, these two blocks will look at the spammer's email address to see if it's associated with multiple CCCIDs (OpenCCC Accounts), or multiple submitted applications within a 24-hour period.

If we find that this initial implementation is too conservative, we've built in the ability to reconfigure the criteria parameters at any time. However, our primary objective is to minimize negative impact on our legitimate applicants.

Release Timeline

* Pilot Environment Release:  Today Wed., April 4 at 12:00pm - 2:00pm
* Production Release: Friday, April 6 at 6:00pm

Both maintenance windows should be short for this release.


In an effort to prevent spammers from finding out the specifics of these changes, minimal details are being published on this support site or the public documentation site.

No action is required by the colleges. For more information, please contact CCCApply
