Topic: Trojan

In the General forum, there is a thread with multiple links to "shemale" sites.  Going to any of these sites results results in the "downloader.gen.a" trojan being downloaded.

Stay away. 

Admin, you need to kill this post.

Re: Trojan

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the heads up.  The best way to deal with these spam posts is report them, then a moderator will see the report and remove them/ban the poster.

We're looking into ways to better stop spammers from even making it as far as posting, but in the meantime, it's a hand moderation task... so any help you can give us in pointing out the spam by reporting the post is great. smile

Re: Trojan

Spam is starting to get out of control! There are posts everywhere, for Nike shoes and Hot girls. It's not that I don't appreciate these ladies, but it doesn't look very professional on such forum...

Isn't there a captcha module for punBB?

Re: Trojan

There might be, but CAPTCHAs are terribly inaccessible, so we'd really prefer to avoid them if at all possible.

The best way to fight spam, for now, is to report it so that a moderator can more easily find it and remove it.

Re: Trojan

CAPTCHAs are for idiots. Removing spams "by hand" is also stupid in the 21th century... Try this - in real roxing language PHP of course:
