So guess what? We're getting spambots.

Really fun spambots, too. These little fuckers are attaching trojans to the threads themselves.

So, my friends, DO NOT CLICK ANY THREAD PUT UP BY A SPAMBOT IF YOU CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE!

If you think there's a spambot thread, please let me or any of the other admins know IMMEDIATELY.

What do you mean by "they are attaching Trojans to the threads themselves?" That shouldn't be possible. Either your browser or OS had a vulnerability that got exploited (i.e. a buffer overflow in one of the win API's that happens so much) or there is a XSS flaw in the templates that the forum uses.

Even with the latter you should have to run something to get a virus.

Whatever was trying to load in the spoilers those spambots put up was definitely throwing trojans at me, I had to run a full scan afterwards just to make sure my anti-virus caught them all. It would only notify when I opened a thread posted by the bots.
