Today's spam attack

It was one of the biggest ones yet, more than 1200 threads deleted.

The owner has employed outside assistance to stop spam which worked well until today. Today's spam got here via Finland and Switzerland.

The attack was ongoing as I deleted threads. It was sorta fun, sorta.

Sorry about it.
Thanks from Bookworm, RNG, Camelot and 3 others

Does this mean Chip actually took an interest in DTT?

His host server has a vulnerability. Apparently the outside talent sold him anti spam software that didn’t fix the underlying problem or a server he has set up himself needs updating. Phpbb 3.2.2 got hit with malicious software that rerouted servers using a couple of their packages. I see they patched it.
