the forum is spamming me

Post by filbo » Sun Feb 25, 2018 10:35 pm

I seem to be getting a set of 10 emails about spam posts by exterminated accounts 'GalenPi' and 'Ridgecopy', from Jan 14th, over and over. The emails actually claim to be dated Jan 14th (internal Date: header), but issue from artsoft.org last night.

Ohhh... hmmm, they're from staging dot whatever. Working on antispam scripts last night?

First of all, I have to apologize for these unwanted side effects! :(

Apparently all users of the forum got these spam mails. Oh well... :-o

Yes, you're sort of right -- I had an older copy of the forum at staging.artsoft.org for some testing purposes, which did not have the effective anti-spam measures activated as the "real" forum at www.artsoft.org has. Unfortunately, spam accounts registered at that staging forum and started spamming it... :-(

I've deleted it for now. Please let me know if you should get any further spam mails. (You shouldn't, but if I should have overseen something, I would have to take further actions.)
