Member Tutorials has been hacked (sigh)
« on: September 13, 2009, 08:34:14 PM »
It appears someone has figured out how to hack Drupal (the backend software for SoR Member Tutorials).

They've managed to use a bot to repeatedly create accounts without Admin approval.

I haven't seen any damage or graffiti yet, but just keep an eye out for anything strange.

I don't know how to block it, I can only just manually delete accounts as they are created. And wait for a patch to come out . . .

sigh :-[
