BEWARE OF FORUM SPAM!

Well, something has definitely happened here at My70sRadio in the last week. It seems that in addition to some hacker getting into my main directories on the server, that spammers have suddenly found the site too.

They are registering and then posting all kinds of spam in all of the forums, and some of it is porn. Please do not click on any thread that even remotely looks like spam. If you don't recognize the user name, don't go there either. If you see threads that you think are spam, please PM me right away.

I am investigating ways of keeping this site safe. You may have noticed that you now have to authenticate your logon with a graphic clue test. Sorry - but it helps to cut down on the automated programs that I believe are doing this.

Thank you for your patience,
Tjoe

well, I feel a little bit better about all the hacking that has hit my site recently...

It seems that MANY sites that are running php scripts or php bulleting boards are getting nailed. Several major php support sites (that are suppose to help you keep out of trouble) have taken themselves offline because they were hacked too.

I am still looking for good solutions to the most recent events: our site getting tons of spam in the forums. Also looking for real solutions. If you know an exact way of stopping these that has worked in other places, please let me know. So far I have upgraded the dbase, changed the site key, changed the god and admin passwords, and activated the graphic security key and the admin-activation of new accounts. None of these have prevented the new accounts from getting in and posting spam.

Thank you for your patience and remember to not click links that you think are spam or from new usernames you don't recognize.
