Whos on-line?

I urge you to go to "Who's on line?".

60 some members that I have never even seen their names before are viewing, "Social Group List".

Is this site being used for something shadey/illegal?

"0" threads and "0" postings???
Of the 6-10 or so names that I clicked on!
Most of them came "on-line" about the same time!

Has the site been compromised, Again?

All of their IP addresses are foreign, many from Mexico.

Something is rotten in Denmark.

Looking into it.

Thanks for pointing that out. There is a total of 79 people who joined on the date you mentioned. Of those only a few people have posted. Most of the suspect user email addresses are from mail.com. The IP's I randomly checked are from Poland and Mexico. My inclination at this point is to remove all the mail.com users and then maybe check the rest a little deeper. Too many to check individually.

They are clever.

They have created Social Groups and posted spam in the groups. They've created about 200,000 messages.

I can't delete them manually (I've gotten a few hundred, but it's impossible), and I can't do a One Touch Ban and Clean from a Social Group.

Ya I'm not having much better luck from the Admin Panel either. I have found if I delete the user it is supposed to also deleter the Social Group and posts. Problem is I can only do one at a time and when it refreshes it takes a number of page loads to get back. Very tedious. I didn't sign on for this, after all the ball game is on. Did post in the Moderator Help area so hopefully we'll get this fixed soon.
I'm trying to find some short cuts in the mean time.

Check Who's Online.

I think I got all I could see. I found a pretty quick way to do them one at a time, sheesh.

I was able to mass delete the Social groups they created which removed them too.

I'm concerned. They are banned but still active.
