IBM.com Connections servers gets it first spammer
Tags :IBM Connections spammers
A large number of us received some spam notices from the IBM.com Connections server this past week. I was surprised to see this enter my stream and send my email notifications from the main IBM Connections environment:
naomi bashir posted a message to you:
naomi bashir Hello dear new friend,
My name is Naomi Bashir a good looking girl.I
have a special reason of contacting you which i will make known to you, Please write to my email address box: (firstname.lastname@example.org)so that
I will tell you more about me and send my pic to you bye.
Now the more entertaining portion was that some people connected to this account (as shown in the stream) and IBM quickly deactivated the account.
This person is no longer an active user.
With any open system this is bound to happen, but it does ask the question what form of spam preventions and controls exist in the current IBM Connections servers. Anyone?
