Most of the garbled topics end in a University that can be read! Anyone else seeing this?

Not hacked. Just a spam posting robot. The garbage will soon be removed I'm sure.

We were not hacked. Just like you can post 100 messages in a row, so can robot spammers. It's just garbage posts and nothing to be concerned with. No user data was misappropriated. Of course if you want, change your password.

Not sure "hacked" is the correct term but we did get "SPAMMED" or "BLASTED with spam"

Either way, I think I have them all deleted. and the user is NUKED out of here :-)

Thanks,
Kirk

Oh my Lord people, if you don't know what "hacked" means, please don't use it.

The ads in the topics are still screwed up showing gibberish. And I'm not sure I would trust any of the legible ones in the posts that I just checked.

The ads show related content to the posts. It will take a bit for them to catch up to the spam being gone. Nothing to worry about.
