Spam attacks!

Postby Arghiro » Sun Nov 24, 2013 9:55 pm

Woa, I thought the site had livened up a bit, but it all turns out to be a load of spam.

C'mon Nick get off ya butt & kill it all, your defences have been breached, or is it your breeches need defending?

It's a worldwide phenomenon over the last four days with phpBB boards.

This board is running the latest version of the software with good anti-spam protection, but that hasn't stopped all the latest attacks.

Hopefully phpBB will come out with a security update soon.

Silkie and I are deleting it as fast as it appears. I've just deleted about 100 users and 50 threads, and I can't see any spam at the moment.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to indent for a new mouse since my current one has been worn to a stub over the last couple of days.

Silken One,
I have heard it said that mice enjoy a diet of spam.
Is yours not a mouse of this ilk?
Regards
