Phenomenal increase in spam in the forums

Recommended Posts

What’s up with the humongous increase in spam in the forums lately (last 3-4 weeks)? I’m seeing a dozen or more reports a day, and that’s just the stuff that’s being reported. Has something changed in our software that’s no longer protecting as well, or are the spammers just working harder (awww)?

It’s actually the report feature that’s being spammed, and I suspect it’s an exploit in the code IPS needs to patch. Most people aren’t even aware of the spam. It’s only staff who sees the reports, and there’s never anything in the actual thread when I check.

But you know, it’s funny how when school lets out, the spam goes up, at least until they hit their data limit for the month. :lol:
