    Just checked MBAM forum to see why no database updates in awhile today and someone has posted porn on their forum. Can someone contact Bruce or Marcin to have it removed.

    It's now gone. It was for some porn cam I think in England. Just seems like not many updates today (8221 was my last, not sure what time).

    Folks at MBAM Forum were advised, you should express concerns for that Forum at that Forum, assuming you use the software and are active with the MBAM Community.

    The offending post(s) were certainly flagged and removed as soon as they were detected.

    Thank you.

    I've seen this at MBAM forum before. Reported it to them...they fixed it immediately. Recently saw the MalwareCity forum covered in porn and spam, and they had to shut it for a couple of days to clean up. Also saw others (incl Secunia) spammed, and it seems to be an ongoing battle for those that operate public forums, unfortunately.
    Here's some folks that try to keep track of it : http://www.stopforumspam.com/

    On MBAM forum you have to have 50 posts I believe before you can see the 'report post' button. Bit of a shame really as a lot of people (myself included) read the forum but don't post a lot there.

    This means you either have to post there about the spam/porn, giving them yet another post to read, or you pm a mod.
