I've had people spam my anonymous (registration not required) forum before, adding links to other sites. But yesterday, somebody started posting garbage to my site, automatically and non-stop.
There were bogus links with random strings of text (no words) and randomly generated hyperlinks to bogus domain names like asdfkasdkf dot com, etc.
Since each post was simply valueless random junk I wonder if somebody was trying to ruin my forum?
Thank you and please advise.
P.S. Fortunately, flood protection helped (each IP has to wait 1 minute before next post) but each incoming message was sent from a different IP, which I blocked as soon as they'd come in (blocked over 100 IP addresses). The attacker must have exhausted his list of proxies because posts slowed down to a complete halt after adding the last one.
