Good News - Bad News

As most of you know, we got hit pretty hard by a spammer this week. Looks like they found a security hole in the software.

The good news (I guess you could call it good news), is the most of them came from the same IP address. ( 59.90.137.17 ). So I have blocked this address. This made it a little easier to find all the posts with spam.
I deleted the posts, but could not delete them a 'spam' since they seemed to be legit copied posts, but had the spam Signature in each post.
As far as I know, I have deleted all the newer spam posts.

I currently also have it set that I have to moderate new registrations.

Hope this helps the problem!
**** spammers and scammers!

I am also in the process of updating from 4.0.5 to 4.0.6

Enjoy the forum!
