Rob,

What are the chances of adding a "Denial of Service Attack" button to the forum? This way when any of us see these pathetic SPAM posts, we can funnel an appropriate response to the web sites they are plugging.

Regards,

Joseph

Hi,

I wont help reporting them.

Its not individuals doing it.

There are virus's and malware programs that exist, that post to forums around the world. Once a user gets infected with that virus, it uses their PC to post ads etc to forums around the world, thus disabling admins to block certain IP addresses, because its a different one each time.

Somehow, ProivRc managed to get into some list somewhere, and now we get hit about 5 times a week.

I try to remove as many as I can.

If you google the text from any of the posts, you will get 100s of results, since the virus posts the same message to lots of forums.

What I have noticed is that they always post in the 'OffTopic' forum, so this weekend I'm going to change the ID of the OffTopic forum, and therefore the automatic softare should fail at adding the post because the ID wont exist.

Hopefully this will work...

There are sites that allow you to check if a certain IP address has been affected by these type of virus's, but unfortunatly they dont export the list of IPs, so that you can use them to filter your own site.

Rob.

Rob,

5 times a week - that's thankless.

I would think that there would be a way to go after the websites that they are posting within the SPAM. Hence the request for the denial of service attack button!

Oh well... it's a tedious problem.

Could you block anonymous posters from using web links in their posts?

Regards,

Joseph
