Description Ivaylo Dimitrov (reporter) 2011-09-18 02:05:53 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION: 
(Settings > General > About product)
NA

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. talk.maemo.org is vulnerable to botnet spam attacks.

EXPECTED OUTCOME: 
It should be hard for botnet to pollute TMO with spam threads and posts

ACTUAL OUTCOME: 
No botnet protection seems to exist (i.e. captcha) 

REPRODUCIBILITY: 
(always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10)

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: 

OTHER COMMENTS: 
Recent botnet attacks have rendered TMO almost unusable.

The word botnet should be read as spambot, my bad, sorry
