Apache Haus forum member list hacked?
« on: December 23, 2017, 03:27:17 AM »

This week past I received my first spam message to the unique e-mail address I created for registering with this forum.

Just a warning that e-mail addresses must be leaking from this site.

At this point in time it looks like someone used the emailing feature in the forum. Will look into it further tomorrow.
Was it a 419 scam from a supposed Ms.becky koulibaly? Who spelled Africa as "Afaica."

Confirmed. There was no hack of the member list.

This person spent 2 hours on this board using the email member feature to manually send out those Nigerian 419 scams (at least that's what I received). Talk about a time consuming way to do it.

This person has been banned, their entire netblock has been banned so there's an entire ISP in the Ivory Coast that cannot connect.
