Did the Chinese take over while I was sleeping?

Up early this morning to take the wife to the airport. Hopped on the computer to check my email, all good, then thought I'd take a look at the WF JK General Discussion.

Here's what popped up:

Glad to see I'm not the only one, lol.

I found this post to be especially enlightening:

Yeah, the spam has crowded the recent list. Wish I could report from Tapatalk, using the report function in web view on my phone is difficult.

From what I can tell, they started spamming us around 3 hours ago. I saw them as soon as I logged on. My thanks to all that sent in post reports.

I've got them on the run and looking for more

It's Korean. Trust me, I know, I'm Chinese and I can't read that crap (then again, I was born here and can't really read Chinese anyways...).

I've NEVER seen an attach this big before and thanks for everyone's patience

I banned almost a dozen user accounts and over 500 threads.

We don't have to worry about missiles from North Korea, just the cyber attacks.

This is definitely true. It's pretty dumb for any country to attack us (not to mention mutually assured destruction if we went to war with like Russia) but we are quite vulnerable to cyber security attacks. Some more resources need to be pushed to developing talented programmers to avoid this type of stuff.

Same here. With the exception that I'm now doing it in VA instead of CA. Love my job.

You will notice a small icon that looks like a warning triangle in the lower left of each post. That is the post report button and you can use it to send a message to the entire forum staff (mods and admins).

Just use it in the post you want to report and let us know what's going on and we'll look into it and take appropriate action.

By the way, user klee63346 has been banned for posting spam
