Stinkin' Spammers, Part 2

I think I ticked someone off... heh... :)

I sent out email to all registered users of the CoCo Hut message board, but here it is again just in case:

Unfortunately, some spammers got through to the board today and posted some, er, rather graphic pictures.  I sincerely apologize to anyone who stumbled into them before I could get them nuked.

The board IS completely safe (well, as safe as any phpBB board). It won't execute scripts or anything like that, or anything that someone could use to compromise a remote computer. If you see a message from someone who's name is not underlined (linked), those are the ones to avoid. Shouldn't see those anymore, but just in case, that's how you can tell. I have locked down the forums they got into, as well, and modified the scripts to stop the issue from happening again.

Again, my apologies. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to write.

Basically, some porn got stuck in there. And it wasn't even good porn. Sheesh! I change the scripts a bit and added a phpBB update tonight. So it should be locked down. Posting a dirty picture or two, by the way, is about the worse thing they can do. No serious damage. But, if it offended anyone, I am truly sorry. Steps have been taken to purge this peril from our midsts. :)

Angel's Luck,
