[Scilab-users] Spam in Scilab Forge

Dear Scilab Forge admins!

It seems that the Scilab Forge site suffers from spam attacks.
Recently I have received 28 e-mails from the Scilab Forge site.
The e-mails were sent from bufferblock issue tracker - http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/bufferblock/issues/1483/ .
There are other trackers with spam activity.

Please consider to check security status of Scilab Forge.
It seems to be vulnerable for illegal new user registrations and maybe something similar.

this is note the only one , ticket interface of other "abandoned"
projects are used by spamers :

* http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/metanet/issues/
* http://forge.scilab.org/index.php/p/scimax/issues/949/

the maintainer of each project should suppress those messages from
issues (?) but they probably  stopped working on these projects ...

Best regards,
