A brief note to say that a couple of older postings were found to have been modified recently to contain spam links. I’ve corrected the ones I found but please let me know if you spot other obvious modifications. e.g links to adverts etc.
Please – all those with author status, change your passwords if you have one that may be discoverable -e.g if it is a name or dictionary word.
To put this into context – this site gets about 300 attempts to post spam comments a month and over 16,000 since we opened. most of these are captured before you ever see them. This is the first time I know that anything got through.
