Warning: Possible Spammer Lurking

    Hi all,

    I have been trying to convert my phpbb script to bbpress and unknowingly used this script by jiam3.

    Here is the link: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/402?replies=25

    Admin if you find this command below in this script to be true please lock this thread and remove the link.

    Careful, at the end of the script it writes:

    “Sending all your database e-mails to all major world-wide spam sending mafias…”

    This is not good. I tried to contact the author and the email link is dead.

    I have now to suffer the consquences. “Buyer Beware!”

  • I have checked it over and don’t see anything. Check out my other thread.

    Hi Trent,

    Thanks for this. Sorry but I think this is a very bad joke, especially if people like myself are coming over because of spammers killing phpbb.

    Well at least this is cleared up.

    I would agree. Not really a tasteful joke, but it seems like it really was a joke. I can’t see one thing in that code that would send any information that it gets to anyone but the database you are connecting to or the file that you can have it create. I could be missing something and would appreciate it if others would also check this, but I don’t think there is anything wrong here.

    Trent
