Advertisment Bots

(1/1)

GB:
Recently, some malicious users or bots have created a bunch of phony pages in the User: Namespace filled with adverts and links to possibly malicious sites. I think it's important for these to be removed.

Have you let DOM know?? 

GB:
Yeah, the problem has been rectified now. All's clear!

georgiapeach:
Great!

theschnauzers:
This problem is showing up in other forum message boards hosted by other services. One forum I am an admin at has been seeing adspammers who are not only able to evade the Captcha device, they also are getting past email verification in setting up a user account.

It is a pain to deal with, and we're not sure what a long term solution is unless the host of the forum servers makes modifications to deal with these latest evasions. Just a FYI.
