Buffer Overflow in developer portal site

Hi Team,

Captcha fields suppose its 5 digit s, It should accept only 5 digits. It should not accept above 5 or multiple numeric numbers.

Is There any option to accept captcha up to 5 ditgits.

By defult it allows captcha upto 128 digits.  If users entered more than 5 digits, Developer Portal will return the following error:

The answer you entered for the CAPTCHA was not correct.

Our concern is will take only 5 digits but why it is allowing user to enter 128 digits?

    No evidence of a buffer overflow has been provided. You can type stuff in the box, but if you submit it and the server ignores it (as it will) then it's not a vulnerability.

    The user must enter the correct number of digits as provided in the Captcha and the form field should not influence or provide additional data to a user/bot of what is being requested.
