Hide your email address

Post by LDM »

With apologies to members, someone (using 3 different names) joined up today to send out spam emails through the board on anyone with their email address public within their profiles!

They were advertising paid phpBB styles and work (which looked a complete rip-off price) within their mails.

To stop this happening again, I urge you to go to Your UCP click on Board preferences, and make sure you check your "Users can contact me by e-mail:" to No and then submit at the bottom.

If you are running a phpBB forum with styles, mods, etc make sure you blacklist this IP

Code: Select all

84.36.133.163
from Eygpt! They are already showing within a lot of spam lists.

Spammers - complete vermin!

I took the easy option as they came back again (twice) and just turned off email usage accross the forum.

Sorry to those that got emails. As you saw and as mentioned above by tris, their portfolio was shite anyway.

WOW!
You replied to a 3 year old thread.
That earns you the award of "-DELETED-".

Congrats man! :good:
