    Vulnerability in Blog Posts for Spammers

    Yep, they'll leech on anywhere they can. Check out the Blogs page to see about 8 or so blogs about world of warcraft with a ton of fail-spam links.

    I'm a fan of the game as much as anybody, but fail spam is fail. A report has been filed as well for the most recent blog by that user. I don't know what can be done/changed, just bringing it out in the open for discussion.

    Are still there? I thought I deleted them about an hour ago. I'll logout and see if they are still visible.

    They are for me. Apologies if it's been taken care of. Thanks for looking into it Gen.

    Ithian, I think it just needs some server cycle or something because they are all tagged as deleted by me but are still visible an hour later. I guess the server isn't processing the status change very quickly tonight.

    Which, more or less, is an extension of the phenomena I was speaking of here (except more newbie inattention as opposed to intentional --- but access control is what is indeed needed).

    Gen3SF:

    Yup, I can attest still being "seen" at this end as of 12:51 am EST.

    Post themselves are still accessible as well, but I do see that user's status listed as "banned" so probably like you said sync/cycle issue.

    No worries, I'm glad it was looked at and assessed already. WoW spam links bring back some annoying memories

    Thanks again.

    I saw them too after I logged out-they look different when I'm logged in due to the moderator view. That's why I had to log out to see what you are seeing and yes they look like they did an hour ago. No apologies necessary Ithian-you can't see the tags reported that the blogs have been deleted. Anyway, the order to delete has been entered and we await the execution of the order.

    You are up very late tonight NS.

    Sure they weren't already deleted? Asking because I just re-selected and deleted them all just awhile ago. There were 5 labeled as starting at about 7:30PM I think. The new security patches must be having some effect on us here.
