Spam in Archive Reviews

Postby EntAllat » Sat Oct 31, 2015 1:20 am

Some of you may have gotten notices today of a new review on a random chapter of a story, only to find the review deleted. We had a deluge of spam reviews from a account that was created just minutes before, I've since deleted the user and am cleaning out the spam, but it may take a while to get through all of them. If the review is missing, it was the spam I just deleted.

These should all be cleared out now. Let me know if you run into any more.

Yup, we're continuing to get spam reviews from time-to-time. I caught this one pretty quickly so I think only a handful of you might have gotten notices and I've already deleted the spam reviews.

I'll be looking into captcha updates this summer, but this may just be part of an uptick in hacking and spam recently. Let me know if you run into anymore.
