Who the hell is this guy,he just sent me 4 spam emails with links to web sites saying visit these web sites,is this normal practice from comodo firewall forums,for people to gain my email,because i have it not to show.
Iam not sure if hes a moderator or what anyone else get these messages from commdo firewall forum,if it is policy to send people spam messages from your admins plese stop,if its not you i apologise.
A spambot or individual created an account and sent private messages to everyone it could find. If you have your profile setup to notify you upon receiving a private message (the default), then you get the email saying you have a private message. He/she/it never had your email and never will.
This issue has been dealt with. The account has been deleted and blocked by IP. As rgreene501 stated this was actually a smambot written to click the send a PM button on every account and to post new topics to send these images. When you get a PM you are informed at the email address you entered on your profile, don not worry, no-one has your email.
A number of new security measures has been introduced to prevent this is in future, and sorry you encountered this. Hopefully, future forum visits will be more pleasant.
I was starting to worry about getting all these links to asian girls etc from Comodo
HAH! I thought I was special getting my “asian boy wonder” photo… Hey Dean, leave photoshop alone…
Thanks for sorting out the problem with that spam bot or whatever it was,hopefully no one else will open there private messages and get a nasty shock again, think it might have scared me for life…seeing naked men when i visit a security forum or any other forum for that matter is not what i want to see, but i know there are some people who think its funny to post messages liek that.
btw may i suggest you block images in private messgaes if you havent allready done.
Yes, please block images/attachments in private messages
can you also post this spambot ip, so it can be added to host lists.
