Wow, spam invasions. I hope it’s not due to some security leak in the forum’s database.

No, I don’t think so, we’re still using Akismet and so on, but are being very heavily targetted by (I think) human spammers. It’s been getting worse for the last couple of weeks, and is taking me a lot of time to clean up every day :(

They got the Docs too… replaces the start page with *something* — I restored the last version that looked like it wasn’t spam.

The Docs is hacked again!

Simon, is it possible to get the IP addresses from which these “vandalisms” came from? If yes, you could report to their ISP.

Thanks, I reverted the docs page again and deleted the users, not that this is much of a deterrent. The attacks are coming from all over, and there’s a limit to how much time I can spend tracking down details and reporting people. I’m looking into changes to the forum software currently as a start.
