I'm dealing with fake user registrations on my site. Since i'm using WooCommerce, i have a custom signup page which will generate users with "customer" as the user role. However, all of the fake users are registering through wp-login.php, which will generate a user with the "subscriber" role.
Is it possible to somehow disable the user generation process(probably inside
wp_insert_user()) if it tries to signup a user with the role set to subscriber? The closest action i could find is
user_register, which triggers immediately after the user has been created, so i could delete the user if the role is subscriber, but i would like to do this before the user is even created.
Also most of the user data is filtered, but not the user role:(
