Default Spam PM's! DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS!

Guys, I just got a pm from "BendingCornerz"

The PM was titled "Great RC Tech videos...

I don't know if anyone has actually clicked on the videos or not, just watch out. I know there was another person sending out trojans through links inside PMs.

Has anyone else gotten this?

I just got one from some ass clown called cooldude, although I appreciate the free porn, its not something that should be sent here. This bloke has over 100 post's as well, so it seem he's a busy boy.

I got one from ctmSen. It looks like a legit account. My guess is that someone ran a dictionary attack (or something similar) to harvest legit usernames and passwords, and then spammed people with them.

So, it's possible innocent people could be losing their accounts when you go to ban them for this.
