Loads of garbage about HP printers, Norton antivirus, etc. Has the forum been hacked by any chance?

    Lousy spam filters by Insided. Flag a few as spam.

    As dhn says, they slipped past the spam filters. We've updated them now and removed the spam posts. Thanks :)

    So here we go with another avalanche of spam, InSided spam filter is a load of c**p, 25 in the last hour, and still they come :(
    Have recently had a number of post 'awaiting moderators' to be cleared then we get this :(

    There must be some really sad and twisted people about if they've got nothing better to do than cause trouble for others with their spam, trojans, viruses et al. I'm glad I've got a router with a robust defence (at least I hope it has, it's blocked lots of bad stuff recently).d471e2ca-2537-415a-9122-8549a9fdaeb3.jpg

    Fortunately the US office is still open so have raised a 2nd level support ticket to try and get this spam attack squashed, but it does raise the question as to what we 'elites' are supposed to do when the US office shuts down for the weekend!
    @Lorna @VikramK @lampard some positive instructions would be nice

    I can't even get the Report button to work today when I try to report one of the messages as spam!
