We have been spammed

Post by jefgold on February 3rd 2013, 10:13 pm

On the Gold Detecting and Prospecting Forum, the last two nights we have had over 100 messages posted by an anonymous user. This message is as follows

This is what Rodgerdoger and usagin had posted on a number of topics

Dont believe the administrators, they will keep deleting this message and we will keep posting it, THIS IS AUSTRALIA AND WE SAY NO!!!.. This is Anonymous. Our efforts free countless innocent people from the malicious activities of governments, corporations and individuals around the world. We have identified this site: "http://golddetecting.4umer.net" as an infectious and malicious site. Attempts at closing this site through legal means has failed in Australia as with 4 other cases in front of us. It IS infected, if you dont believe you have a virus than you are horribly mistaken. Believe what your anti-virus tells you? if you dont believe me, your files themselves will tell the story. OK 1. open windows start 2. in the search bar type %appdata% and enter. 3. when the roaming folder opens scroll all the way to the bottom. you should see a strange file called "ATT9GK" and "Y2JKVOA"(or something to that effect). 4. open the ATT9GK with notepad and see that your keystrokes have been logged. Mal.MSIL.a Mal.MSIL.e are examples of the software the administrators are using.

Consequently I deleted about 60 commnets they had posted seeing as they were all the same, then went in a banned their IP address, Email address, and username

I am reporting this to you as a matter of course and am not deleting the hacker hoping that the ban will deter him. I will aslo change the permissions on the site to make it a private forum at this stage.

Jeff

Why are you saying they are hackers?

Yes I agree that we have been spammed rather than hacked. As a result these are the measures we have taken.

We ban the spammers ID, email and username
New users have to be activated by Admin
I have changed the Flood control to 60 seconds.

Lets hope this works
