#813 closed defect (fixed)

we need spam protection for the ticket system :-(

Tickets #498 and #603 both have an asian-teen-porn-spam attached (at least it looks from what you see on that page like it is something like that - can't read the language, but it's definitely _not_ related to anything in Django).

Don't know wether one can remove comments in the ticket system - at least I don't know about a way, but there might be something in Trac 0.9. We will need wiki and ticket "gardners" that have the right to kill comments/changes like those ...

Usually that crap rolls in in little numbers and if they see that it stays around, they will start to flood the system. So we should get something running now, to prevent bigger damage later. I hate spammers :-(

Looks like this is ticket 454 over at Trac's trac. For now I can delete 'em directly in the db; drop me an email if we get hit again.

we have another spammer :(
lots of tickets now have been changed to summary: "smart+question"
and content "hello gyus! http://spammers/url sorry ;)"
i also recognized a spelling update: "hello guys! http://spammers/url sorry ;)"
so it seams our bad guy is updating its script at least once.

please add this guy to the blacklist...
