Something happened today.

Recommended Posts

Today for the first time in a long, long time something happened.

 

There was fake account set up and a spam post was entered into the system with links to click on.

The post registered to an IP in Camaroon.

 

I have deleted the post and deleted the user and banned the IP address.

 

There is very little likelihood that a bot could register an account here. It almost had to be a human to come in the first time.

 

The last time this happened the whole site was eventually compromised. Kirk and I battled it for a very long time.

 

It may become necessary to implement additional authentication on the site. If that happens a broadcast email will be sent out.

 

Please make sure your email address for your account is up to date.

We all know whose fault it is...

Can you somehow block new users from posting until we can verify their accounts?

Like a basic IP check to verify they are coming from the US.
