Re: [Discussion] Downtime and Server Compromise

I am also thinking it is a multipronged event. As I have mentioned in a few posts above, I have a forum that has been around for about a year, just sitting, with only 3 real members (we are getting ready to relaunch), ans since Jan 30th almost 2 doz. Spam registrations. Too coincidential for me. Rusty
