Security concerns

When I log in and click on "view posts since last visit" at least 1/2 of this list consists of porn bot posters. My concern: is some program trying to access my PC and run a process through your site?? I have a very good firewall, but this is scary nonetheless. I haven't seen an infestation this bad on any other forum site, except for the LHC forum that got hacked.

I know NC.com must view this as a serious problem and I would be interested to know what is being done to combat it.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    Hi there!

    I've posted a few times that we're working hard to combat the bots. We've hired a whiz guy who's working on it as we speak. It's just an attack on our site; it will have no effect on your computer at all.
    And hopefully, it will be a thing of the past by mid next week! Grrrrr. In the meanwhile, we're going thru and deleting as fast as we can.

    You are beautiful!

    Thanks, knew you guys were on it. Whatever you do I hope it gets rid of these porn and medication terrorists, permanently.
