FYI:: forum seems to have been hacked

Today I noticed that all Adapt Learning forum emails are defaulting to my gmail spam box. Several are not legitimate forum communications but are ads from completely unrelated sources. Is this happening to anyone else?

Hi Sue,

thanks - just adding this for completeness sake: I responded in more detail on this thread. The forum has not been hacked but someone has posted three off-topic spam messages. The spammer has now been blocked from accessing the site.

We have not had any further spam since then and it's nice to reflect that we have had thousands of on topic posts since the project started. We endeavour to keep it this way. Thanks again for pointing this out.

Best regards,

Thanks for that. It happened again last Saturday, and my inbox was flooded with multiple messages from 1 source. I guess the best thing is for me to unsubscribe from the forum replies and just read them online. It would be helpful if you posted a note in the Twitter feed so I'd know I'm not the only one getting all this spam.
