This particular variety has also hit a number of blogs. Hopefully some brilliant techie will sort it soon.

Another forum that I frequent, which uses the same software, is having a similar problem and has had for several months now. Hope it's not a weakness in the software, as it's very helpful for forum templates otherwise!

Thanks! Yes, we're working on it, they appear to be exploiting a weakness in the software to make it very hard to delete their posts. Please do be extra cautious about clicking on any links in those posts.

Upon hitting the review unread posts button, I noticed that there seems to be quite a bit of spamming this weekend. It's not by one individual or about anything in particular, but there are some links attached that could potentially contain viruses. I just thought I would let you know.
