I got the PM twice, but no email. The email address I use here is an alias to my real one so if I start getting loads of crap I can simply delink it and create a new alias.

I got the email notifying me that I had a PM on the system.   :-\  I got all excited thinking some cute guy wanted to court me!  lol

I did check out the SMF forum and found some discussion on the subject of PM SPAM.  Looks like it has been brought up and then forgotten, so I started a new thread.   ;D

Maybe if I don't let the subject die, it will not be forgotten and some measures will be implemented to thwart this type of thing.

Anyway, back to waiting for my night in shinning Armour.   :-*

Patrick

I got it also.  NEVER CLICK ON A LINK IN AN UNKNOWN EMAIL!!!!!

That's a good way to end up with something bad on your computer.  Could possibly launch an offscreen window to monitor keystrokes.  I use a Mozilla browser because windows can't be positioned out of view.  I've sometimes caught a small window lurking in the corner of my screen and immediately close it.

Okay -- we're figuring this out.  It wasn't a "security breach," like I thought previously.  It's just an aggressive spammer using our PM system.  The spammer created an account, then selected random usernames, picking the maximum 10 at a time.  He only sent it to about 50 folks.  Most users in the forums have their profiles set to receive an email notification when they get a PM.  You can turn this off in your Profile's "Personal Message Options" section -- you'll see "Notify by email every time you receive a personal message: _______" on this page, and you'll have a couple of options there to turn this feature on or off.

Rest assured, the spammer never obtained anyone's email address -- they just used the forums to send you an automated email.

So how do we fix this?  We can try a few things.  We've blocked this spammer from being able to visit the site, but we'll need to make sure this doesn't happen again by others.  We might decide to disable email notifications for PMs.  There isn't an admin option for this, so we'll have to edit the underlying software.

But this won't solve the PM spam issue.  I've lowered the threshold of how many users a PM can be sent to, so now the limit is 5 instead of 10.  We'll explore other options as well.

I've deleted all the PMs from our spammer -- you might still see the PM, but it's subject line and content have been deleted.

Thanks for your patience in this matter.

Peter

Peter,

Out of curiosity the picture wasn't one of those aggresive JPG exploits that have been going around the net was it? I was reading up about them causing a lot of problems, with just the perverted porn picture starting all kinds of executable files on your system.

Maybe the message board software protects that though.

Take care,

John

Yeah, this happened the other day and when I brought it up I was told "it's a free country."  Of course, message boards have all sorts of rules and most enforce not resurrecting a zombie thread -- I wish someone would assert some such authority here.

And you know what, if they don't want a rule like that then starting in 2 weeks I plan to resurrect one zombie thread every 3 hours.

Perhaps if the "reply on..." date was the same font as the subject line, we'd be better able to read the year it was posted. I mean, it is July, just 2008 now instead of 2006. If someone was doing a search for "porno" I can see how they might think that last post in 2006 was recent.
