Spamming

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.

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.

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!

This particular variety has also hit a number of blogs. Hopefully some brilliant techie will sort it soon.
Science! The articles you don't want to miss:
The Preeclampsia Puzzle (New Yorker) and Silent Struggle: A New Theory of Pregnancy (New York Times)
Looking for recent articles and studies? Lectures from researchers?
A chance to participate in research? For us on Facebook or Twitter?
