php.net seems to be experiencing a security issue that is forcing users accessing the site from some browsers to pass an anti-spam/bot security check.
Php.net security check issue
php.net the official PHP website is facing security issues. Visiting the website presents a security check screen that requires you to click a link and verify that you are a human by passing a captcha challenge.
Php.net uses myracloud as its security service provider to prevent DDoS attacks. The security check screen presented by Myra on php.net looks like a phishing scam. However, clicking the link and solving the captcha challenge fixes the problem.
We have experienced the same security challenge with Chrome but had no issues when accessing the php.net website with Firefox. So, it appears that there is something with the recent Chrome browser that is triggering a false positive.
Php.net may also be experiencing a spam attack problem or has issues with its server security configurations. It is not clear what the problem is.
For now, passing the old annoying captcha challenge solves the problem.
