DANG WE GOT SPAMMED

Postby torilen » Sunday April 21st, 2019 9:51pm

I'm assuming everyone has seen the 113 posts? All made by a handful of what can only
be fake accounts. Either a handful of people have absolutely no time on their hands,
or a very smart bot made it in.

Yeah.....normally I’m all for leaving a spam post for some amusement....but this’ll need cleaned up. I’m more concerned that these bots seem to be active and logged in. Look at the “Who’s online” section, they’re all there. I hope it’s not able to trash existing posts.

Clearly only a few have rights to clean this up. If help’s needed though, I’ll volunteer.

I paged drathe with a PM. Hopefully he's available to do something 'bout this.
Otherwise I got nothing.

I've at least banned the IP and profiles.
I guess I'll start deleting threads. This won't be one long deleting session, so be patient.
Hopefully drathe has a magic wand of some kind.

Several users has reached out to me to offer help. Unfortunately it seems I can't grant you mod rights.
Hopefully drathe will be available after the Easter.

I see that we have been spammed, I'll start deleting topic's myself once I get back to the office today. I couldn't help this weekend, no access to a computer. I wasn't home this passed weekend.

Thanks for the heads-up. I think I've deleted them all. I've increased the anti-spam measures and changed all our registration questions.
