...and another... trying to quote an old post...

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=14&start=208

It appears the spammerbots have found this place. They almost brought down TORC a few weeks ago, and th eonly reason they didn't was because of one single active mod there who worked very hard to get rid of the spam. They seem to leaving that place alone, but I fear that without active moderation here, this place will soon be clogged with this crap.

Was that “Azgard07” in “Forum Matters » Parth Galen (Polling) » How did you find Arwen-Undomiel.com?” yesterday?

Yeah, they always come in waves from time to time. I don't know why. I will tag a mod on facebook and let them know we have been having issues. Maybe we can get one to come on and deal with the issue.

Thank you Will for keeping an eye on this place!
I have noted that a new name with similar construction has been registering every day for the last few days. The web url they are using is similar. I believe these new registrants are 'sleeper' bots that will wait and not be heard from until they are. A similar thing happened on TORC a few months back and when they did start up, they almost brought the site down. There was one mod struggling to keep up, and finally when the bots managed to corrupt the site code, it went offline for about a week until the site admin/owner reworked the front end. Hoping this doesn't happen here, but the pattern so far is the same.

I notice this latest influx seems to be names with no space or capitalization.
Maybe they were clued in and threw a couple capitol letters in.

The Internet seems plagued by an increasing number of bots, worms, Trojans, and viruses; notwithstanding all of the hacking issues: and the general user has minimal protection.
