I have started getting spam emails to my website mail and every link is from a vBulletin forum. Previously, all of it was links to adult-empire.com, but now all of it is the links to various forums. If you follow the links, and click on what is supposed to be various porno, an exe file starts to download on the computer and it says it's scanning the computer for viruses and trojans.
At one forum site, I noticed it said that over 1000 people had visited that particular post. So, if persons thought they were going to see porno and clicked on it, I wonder what would REALLY be downloaded in that exe file to their computers?
If you are interested in any of this or if you want the links, I would be glad to give it to you.
I notified the people at vBulletin but they said it was only because some people did not use strong enough passwords and it wasn't their fault.
I just am so angry with these spammers that I have just started to try to trace them all and report them wherever I can.
I do believe that the owners of the adult-empire site are involved in other things like credit card fraud and the pharmacy scams. At least that's what I have discovered from my investigative research to try to find out what's going on with all this porno spam.
At this time, I am not sure if I am going to put the Honey Pot software on my website as I am afraid of anyone else's email not getting through...just learning about it now.
