Hey silv, long time no see  :hi: How've you been?
The bots haven't been around lately, though, this may be a result of all the members on hold? I was wondering what the story is with that. Do I have permission to approve members?

I got just checked up and got rid of some spambots (the one that I saw).

The site has already several measurements against spamming and bots. Some dedicated guys just use click farms to register manually.

I will take a look as to what can be done to prevent further bot registrations.

We've heard that a few bots entered our forum and sent messages to users like

We are reacting by tightening our captcha procedure and limiting the number of private messages sent per hour to 50.
If you have received any of such fake private messages, you are free to ignore it. It is just a small company trying to make a few bucks with link advertising on the back of our great community.
You can report NEW bots by posting a spoiler in this topic containing the message and the username from which it was sent.

For all other users: relax! Your jCafe account is safe and your virus infected computer has nothing to do with this private message.


Could you block Spamming users for now? It seems really obvious who is spamming. Doesn't the board software support a probation period of x posts for new users (you don't have to advertise this feature).

Can't something be done about invasion of spam bots with ads? Not only they flood forum, but also overload server, forums are almost unusable those days. According to profiles of some of the spam bots they are active for more than month without being banned.
Is there any way to contact administration\help with this situation?

 they would say that they've detected a virus on your computer and that they could fix it remotely for you. When they had access they would then say they needed to install some software

it looks like:
WermAmums
CyncSesy
Markskiva
Wrilimijer
are bots, (two of them posted here) also they seem to be posting the same things so its probably one person w/ four accounts. it might be worth blocking that i.p. if you do that at all, or limiting posts per day. idk just some suggestions

Sounds similar to a problem we've had in the UK recently. People would get cold called by an Indian person claiming to be from Microsoft, they would say that they've detected a virus on your computer (how?) or that there was a problem with windows that needed fixing (lol, windows update anyone) and that they could fix it remotely for you. When they had access they would then say they needed to install some software (which was infact spyware). They would then try to charge you for it, if you refused, they would activate the spyware and take control of your computer and then try to extort money out of you.

Actually I sent those messages.
I thought I went over this with you Silv, everyone need to run a virus check @ my site so we can earn a few bucks.

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!
