Guess Who Got Hacked!
I just got rid of another spammer, but i was intrigued by the IP he was logging in from - 22.214.171.124:
OrgName: State of Nebraska / Office of the CIO
Address: 501 South 14th street
Here's the information he logged in with:
There is a new user, troubonnoma at Geocaching Maine
Email Address : email@example.com
Birthday : February 9, 1967
IP Address: 126.96.36.199
First Name : QCCCOCQCQ
Last Name : troubonnoma
Location : Tajikistan
The IP address 188.8.131.52 definitely belongs to State of Nebraska / Office of the CIO.
Did you ban the IP?
Did you send them an email to let them know?

Question? What program do you use to get address's off the I.P. numbers? Or is that part of the website setup?
Go to a website that will do a "Whois" lookup. For example, if you click on the hyperlink, the site will show a number in a box - your IP address. Click on "Whois Lookup" and it will tell you about your ISP. Or you can substitute another IP address - of a new member of GCM.org for example - to see where he logged in from.

If they're an obvious spammer, I delete the user and block the IP address from the website (which I now do a little more carefully since I recently blocked part of Roadrunner.com. LOL!)
