    Default Spam in PM account

    I have started to receive spam messages in my PM account here. How are these spammers getting accounts on MH4U?

    Can this be tightened up?

    Got one as well, I don't remember the sender's name. I found the delete button here and in my email. It also seems that I've been getting a lot more email of this nature since I started posting here (not to blame the admins or anything, just an observation).

    First one I've ever seen here. I say that's pretty good in comparison to some other forums I am on.

    I don't know if this is relevant, but someone just tried to log into m4us with my username. The ip address (according to the e-mail I received from m4us) is 117.135.194.53.

    I did a search for my ip, and it's not me.

    When I paste that ip into my browser, it shows up as a chinese (ok, could be any asian language) site.

    Cheers.
    Paul.

    I posted a message in the Multihull Sailing Forum on 2 Feb mentioning the same problem with someone trying to log into my account. Unsuccessfully I hope.
