Default Phishing attempts via SPAMming posts

Aloha to our members on the PakShak Detailing Forum.

It has been brought to our attention from a couple of our members to use caution when clicking on links by obvious SPAMmers. Most likely they are trying to use some type of avenue of attack by conducting phishing attempts via SPAMming the PakShak Detailing Forum.

Always err on the side of caution and DO NOT click on any unfamiliar/unknown links and posts in threads. By doing so, you may execute a backdoor trojan or virus on to your system and/or it could also load malware (i.e. spyware/adware) on your system. Always make sure your anti-virus definitions are updated regularly (auto daily update recommended) and your operating system (OS) is patched with the latest updates.

Just a friendly reminder from the PakShak Team...

Thank you & Aloha,

Ranney Pak

I have cleaned out the memberlist like 5 times in the last 24 hours. It just never ends. :evil:

Here's another tip: any website with a ".info" is likely to be spam. No clicky, please.

Now that the tax deadlines have passed, I'm able to get to the mod stuff a little more often. When crap appears in the forums, please be patient; Ranney, Crush or myself will get to it.

Thanks all!

Thankfully, most of it appears in the general discussion area.

It's unfortunate that you folks have to deal with the spam but putting more control measures in place to slow it down (cooldown periods for membership etc.) would only hurt the progress we're seeing in the growth of the membership base so I'm sure I'm not alone in appreciating the efforts you moderators are putting in to keep things cleaned up.

Thanks !
