  • Spam Accounts with no activity and high profile views...what are they doing?

    I keep finding user profiles that are obviously spammer profiles. The thing that concerns me is the sheer number of profile page visits. I have a user with no activity at all since they registered, yet their profile has been visited 773 times. What are they doing? I've also seen profiles where the about me page description information will just get randomly changed while also getting lots of page views. Is there some kind of spam vulnerability I'm missing?

    I'm concerned I have an open vector to my smtp somewhere and I want to squash it because I've been getting a LOT of mail deferrals and rate limits and such lately (but not blacklisted). I need to find the hole and plug it.

    Really no way to tell without more information. What do your mail server logs say? What do your web access logs say?
