How secure is this site?

Jump to solution

I have been spammed in my McAfee Account Message center by a prostitute. Now I am wondering just how secure McAfee and this site really is...

Quite surprising.

We apologise for the inconvenience.  That user name along with 3 aliases all from the same IP address, which places them in Dakar, Senegal, have been banned as has the IP number to stop fuirther attempts at joining from that area.

The Moderator/Administrators monitor new members several times daily.  Unfortunately these people seem to creep in  when we aren't looking, but we always catch them in the end.

Good point... I forgot that anyone can set up an account... I thought this was based on a product purchase...

How depressing...

Of course all the IP address location means is that the server they were using is there, probably a leaky one that spammers are taking advantage of.  The actual perpetrator could be anywhere.   The glories of this electronic day and age.....sigh...!
