10 04 11 - 14:49The follow IPs are being used to spam our forum. They are most probably compromised Windows machines:
Why is this here? (a) to out these IPs to our search engine friends, to apply pressure to the owners; and (b) to challenge "privacy advocates" (basement dwellers) who think that it's bad or unethical to out compromised IPs.
How do I know they are spammers? Our forum is about metal music. Every single one of these IPs: (a) registered multiple accounts; (b) created a username of the same generic format; (c) had in their signature and byline advertisements for products entirely unrelated to metal, including web hosting, timeshares, lingerie and free laptops.
Be sure to use these IPs anywhere you need sham data!
