Very strange SPAM, a user was created

Post by rbd1612 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 8:58 am


I have recently noticed that a new user had been created for my site, luckily the user was created as disabled and blocked, but it is the strangest SPAM I have ever come across. Does anyone have similar issues or know how this was done. I would like to close this security loophole.

If you think I’m wrong then say “I think you're wrong.” If you say “You’re wrong!”, how do you know?
