Forum spam issue?

Postby jstuartj » Thu May 07, 2015 9:15 pm

I think a the Web Developer talk forum or a users account might have been compromised. There multiple posts to the forum by "prasanth" on May 7th which appear to simply define terms in previous posts. It seams a bit odd, you might want to take a look.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Spam accounts are created quite often on here, normally posting links, but occasionally it'll be one like this, just posting odd comments to old treads.
Never sure what the point in doing that is, seems a strange kind of spam to me :?
I've deleted the posts as they are not relevant.

Cheers,
Mike

Another one (User: kamalpreet123):

Again an Indian user. (Probably the same one.)
