Default are accounts being hacked?

there's been two threads here and one in off-road. all three have been identical spamming about a celeb sex tape. identical wording, identical links.

some of the users had an actual history of posting here (not spammer accounts).

Yes, accounts are getting hacked. I'm currently clearing them out...

2 things need to happen...

1) If you leave RCTech, LOG OUT! This will prevent spiders from getting your account and causing it to be suspended. Once a spider has your account, its really hard to get it back.

2) RCTech NEEDS to implement the security where you have to type in the 'code' in the graphic. Spiders cannot read the graphic, thus preventing spamming. It may be a bit more of a hassle for us, but it will prevent this.
