We got Spammed

Posted: October 15, 2012 in Mancorad News, Mancorad Radio Club

We got spammed.  Not certain if the briefly appearing post about “Internet Surveys” was a problem or another compromise of our blog & reflector.

Passwords have been changed and posting special random passcode has been “regenerated” to change everything we can.

Sorry for the Spam that somehow slipped through,
