Was it the 113 pages of Korean that gave it away
Never seen it so bad
Thanks Admin

The front page shows dbxoqls0000 is lurking, no posts but is listed as an advanced member
I'm suspicious.

Exactly. They should be removed. I've sent a message to the Bluesfest Facebook page and they are on it.

Scary stuff. I was more worried that the main website has been hacked as tickets for 2018 are currently on sale

I'm not sure what they are achieving by spamming a forum either. As long as they aren't getting into the main website's ticketing area .. then it could be dangerous.

Someone hacked into my Instagram page last year. They kept changing my email address to theirs which was a Russian email address. They were using my page to "follow" hundreds of people so I ended up seeing pages and pages on photos belonging to people which weren't on my friends list. I ended up having to delete my account.

I feed a line of the rubbish into google translate
It indicated it was Korean but the line was isolated word or two with no consistent sentence
and a few characters not translated
I was worried it may be too troublesome to fix

Spammed again. This time by a new one. Where is Bluesfest Admin when you need them? I've sent the Admin a message

Hi everyone,

We are working to resolve this issue. Looks like we've got it fixed but we'll keep a close eye on it.

It was one post in each area selling Passports and id documents
All cleared now, nothing like the last time
