Hi all,
Kind of weird, but my "View your posts" list has like...8 threads that have been updated, with the last poster as . But the posts don't exist. And this guy has a post count of 0.

Am I just being stupid, or is this some kind of phpBB bug? Or maybe a hack?

Cheers,
Jack.

Lol, just looking through the "new posts", he's the last poster on like, every thread. Yet he hasn't posted.

Maybe he spammed the board and the database didn't quite get updated right when the moderators removed the posts...? I see the same thing with his name on a bunch of posts but no actual post.

It was a spammer whose posts were removed. The topics will need to be resynced to get rid of his name - not a bug per se, but certainly a shortcoming of phpbb.

Oh right. Fair enough.

Just thought it was a bit odd :)

I resynced all the topics appearing on the first page of every forum. Should you see the name of this spamtard on any topic it shouldn't be on - tell any moderator and he will fix it.
