I received a private message from a member named jurdreda. The message said it was from the administrator and the link said "new forum rules" but the link took me to a porn site.

I got it too. Real nice. If anyone at Rage wants the email header info I'd be glad to send it over.

Yes, I got it, too. I blocked him/her, but he/she can just create a new profile and do it again. Creeps.

We are very sorry to everyone who received this. Unfortunately a spammer signed up to our forums and sent out a mass private message.

We have since made it impossible to send out private messages to more than 1 person and required a wait of 20 minutes before sending out another message.

So you will not have to worry about getting this kind of spam again.

Again, we are very sorry about this.

Great to hear the loophole has been fixed, thank you for that.

For anyone who went to the link, make sure you run some sort of virus scan on your system to make sure that you haven't been infected with any kind of spyware, virus, etc.

As the administrator of a popular sport forum, I understand how diligent you guys have to be to stay on top of spammers like this.

You did a great job, acting swiftly and decisively.

Thanks for being on top of it.
