Good morning to all.

As always, I came to check the american site/forum, but.. What happened to the forum?
There's like 38 topics with some kind of "wtf" title, created by a couple of users, with no answers. It's weird, and made all the other topics go like 3 pages down.
It's some virus or just some dumb spammer?

Hey Leonardo,

Sadly every now and then we suffer from targeted spam attacks. it's jsut automated spamming to promote rubbish sites and they do it in bulk to try to swamp us. This works until we see it and then we delete it, but there's always that little window in between where the real threads are obscured. We're working on an automated approach to block it.

Please make your web application security protected and make sure all queries forms are with captcha, because it play the main role to identify the human and machine....

Well said Leonardo, If you can control the spammers so I think it would be the best win for any human...but ahead as internet users are increasing it is not easy task for everyone.
