    Hey! Everybody on this forum!
    Either my computer has been hacked, or the forum has.
    I am getting emails from Firearm & Gun Forum that look like replies to this thread and others. When I open them they are solicitations for some asian sex product site, with links that I dare not open. Has anybody else gotten anything like that?

    This is not inended to be a joke.

    Thanks. Notdku sent me a link for me to send the stuff to.
    The handle of the perp is "zigawen9", which I don't remember having seen on the forum.

    I deleted several posts from him last night and the actual user as spammer. It must have been part of his 'spam' that I couldn't control.

    Run disk defragmenter and disk cleanup, see if that helps.

    That won't help...

    But keep being cautious about what you open, and have your firewall and anti virus up to date.

    Thank you ma'am. Here is an email I just got from Austin, the security guy:
    Jerry,

    That was a spammer posting to the forum. When you received the notification it included the post that was added to the thread and that was the post.

    If you have any questions please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Austin

    Thanks everybody for your help.

    He told me he got it taken care of.

    I'm glad we got it figured out!

    Yep, thanks for directing me to him. I'm most happy that the forum wasn't damaged.
