Recent Troll/Spam Attack

The trolls that attacked the site this afternoon have been dealt with, and their mess has been cleaned up.  If you missed it, you didn't miss much.  All is back to normal.

That was amazing in a horrifying way. The sheer amount of addresses on the subject line in the Email spam, holy crap...
Seriously, is this how people get their kicks?
I think the spam flow has stopped but still, it was a good amount..

Yeah, I've been getting the spam as well.  We're dealing with that as best as we can, and I apologize for the inconvenience.  An incorrect setting allowed him to view your email addresses, and I'm trying to find the necessary setting to disable that.

I think it's very sad that people would spend so much time getting all those names and sending spam emails just to annoy some people... I counted a total of 75 spam email that had been sent to me...

Some people can't feel good about their own miserable lives unless they spread hate to others. Poor, pathetic bastard.

Spammer on the loose
« Reply #10 on: October 24, 2007, 09:12:55 pm »
There is a /b/tard that's flooding the inboxes of many furries. I believe some of you might have recieved them, since I saw some of your names on the list of people he's spamming. He has various addresses but they are all called thetacoboy. Be careful!

  • Thanks guys, for everything. But I don't think this is my lot in life anymore. Contact me via email if you want to stay in touch with me, or maybe on Xbox Live. But I'm pretty much shedding my fur.

hey, i just came back after a bit of a hiatus mainly because i got flooded just now and wanted to see what was up and if i was the only one. i haven't opened any because of the fear of viruses and other nasty stuff, and i suggest anyone else to do the same. this is some serious stuff going around, the guy that spammed me had like five different addresses that were all random letters (or were multiple people, which might be part of the case) and most had different subjects.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Merged with existing thread, this is already being discussed.  There's no virus content of any sort in the messages, or much of any content at all.  They're just random text, meant to be annoying.

hmm... kk, just didn't want to take any chances. my last comp got trashed by a nasty virus that we don't even know how it got there, so i tend to not fool around with that kind of stuff anymore.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

As long as you're using an extra web-site based e-mail like Yahoo or MSN, instead of something like Outlook, you should be pretty well-warned before you open messages.  Yes 'thetacoboy' is pretty harmless with his spam, but be warned that he may eventually get someone who knows how to use viruses.
