Forum attacks/spam

Postby Hubes » Fri Jul 26, 2019 12:20 am

I just happened to log in to the forums and saw it'd been flooded with quite a bit of porn spam. I hadn't realized I had mod abilities here till now so I cleaned up what I could.

It looks to be automated...I've deleted dozens of threads and banned around 20 accounts used, but they seem to be making new accounts every half hour or so.

I've seen two new accounts created and immediately spam within 15 minutes or so of me cleaning the forums so it's pretty much guaranteed to continue.

Might need to ban IPs...if that's even enough.

I think it is good policy to ban IPs as well. It may not stop the hackers, but we have to make it as difficult as possible for them to operate.
