Spam private messages

Postby FerrariFlyer » Sun Mar 27 2016, 08:46

All,

It appears as though many usernames have been 'infected' by spam private messages in the last week. Please do not open any links contained therein and simply delete the messages before opening.

The usernames responsible for these unsolicited PMs are being dealt with and I'm sure the administrator will have a fix for it in the very near future.

Thanks for your understanding.

I've performed a database update and moded quite a few files. Please let me know here if anything is broken or unusual. Hopefully we are on top of the spam again.

You're being far too kind with the inclusion of the word eloquent.

All,

Just a reminder to continue to ignore and delete any PM's that are suspect and obviously from a spamming source. Even the mods on the site are getting PM's with spam and rubbish content. We are working behind the scenes to reduce breaches however it appears as though it's a tit for tat, ongoing battle to keep the site clean.

Cheers.

I have got a couple over the last 6 weeks.

But not the ones I have been waiting for.

Like "Dear Arrrj, we have deposited 20 million into to you account today".

:D
