Solved Possible "threat"?

Post by Menos Wed Mar 20, 2019 4:01 am

I received a p.m. from a visitor (not a member) in my forum that is probably an advertisement.. or a virus (?).
I din't press the link it gave before consulting with you guys.
Well, I will delete it anyhow.. but, should I be worried?

Removed because an email was included.

Thank you for your response. Smile
The members also got the same p.m.
Is there a way I could protect my forum from this spam?

They used to send spam mostly on the contact form..
but this time it came in the form of a personal message (they got smarter..).
Any ideas σύντροφε?

Hello again,

The best possible way to insure your safety is with an announcement for your members. Let them know that whenever they see a PM from a guest to just remove it from their inbox list. That way they will stay safe and you as well.
