Attack of the Killer Spam Bot

Postby webmaster » Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:04 am

For those of you who have visited this forum in the past month you may have noticed some inappropriate content being posted. The bulk of the offense appeared to have come from a spam bot in China. Not only was the content offensive it also wound up corrupting our database making it quite troublesome to purge the spam. I restored the database from a backup prior to the attack, upgraded the forum software and added an additional countermeasure which should block future spam bot attacks. If you registered or posted to this forum since 4/1/08 your information is gone so you will need to register or post again. Sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Glad you got it cleaned up.
(And glad I didn't get erased) ;)

Now I'll be here a bit more often
