View Full Version : You have no idea how advanced spambots have become

Over the last week cdg has been attacked by a spambot.

This is a programme that aims to post spam links on forums.

Spambots have become absolutely advanced in recent years.

They bypass all protection we take to verify users as humans.

The spambot that attacked us bypassed the image verification, email verifications system and account verification.

It is programmed that the first post of the programme is "Hello. I am new. Where I can find download for..." then a link to a movie props up.

When you click, a trojan horse attacks your computer.

We have removed any such links and blocked the bot but we can't quarantee it want' happen again in the future.

Don't click on links in suspicious posts.

Thank you!

Why don't people realize that spamming them with their advertisements WILL NOT sell their product, rather then make the person hate it instead.

They try to hit that 0,01 % that does buy the product, that the rest of the percenatge ignores them, is ok to them. they will make money from that 0,01 %.
