Hello @sarahw , I think this guide is a spam : https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/Amazon+Al... And the associated user too is a spammer : https://fr.ifixit.com/User/3075340/amazo... Because he promote a product instead of providing a repair or a helper guide.
Hello @sarahw, these tutorials are probably not spams, but it’s been a while nobody complete them and these tutorial are empty so they bring nothing usefull to iFixit : (1) https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/PC+Disass... (2) https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/PC+Laptop... (3) https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/Lenovo+G4... Because they are empty, I think they pollute the PC category : https://fr.ifixit.com/Device/PC Should we report empty and old tutorials like this ?
Hi @sarahw , I got 5 other spams : https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/How+Body+... https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/How+to+Fi... https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/Tablet+si... https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/Business+... https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/How+to+fi...
Hi @sarahw , SPAM ALERT : I think we will need a big ban hammer. I found a batch of spams, “in the tablet section”, I’m pretty sure these are spams because these guides are empty pages with just a title and contain phone numbers in the title : Because there is too much links and my post may be auto deleted by iRobot I listed every links on a pastbin unlisted note (to avoid indexation by search engines) Total 13 links. https://pastebin.com/84NwMWki Note : iFixit URLs listed in the pastbin note are large because SPAMERS used unicode caracters.
Hi @sarahw , I found a SPAM, this one is sneaky, but it isn’t just a SPAM, it’s a SCAM disguised in tutorial : https://fr.ifixit.com/Tutoriel/How+to+Re... I think it’s ban hammer time for the author :)
Hi @sarahw , I think someone is trying to find security breach into iFixit tutorials webpages by trying to inject HTML code into tutorials fields. Code injection are a common attack method and can be used to force a webpage to display content that it sould not display, like embeding malicious code, display a link or redirect users to a malicious website. It seem's this user didn't succeed, so don't worry. Here is a link to the users profiles : https://fr.ifixit.com/User/3393166/kingb... And https://fr.ifixit.com/User/3393243/user2... And Also https://fr.ifixit.com/User/3394179/attac... I think you sould consider permanantly ban this (or theses) users by blacklisting his/their IP adresses because they know how to create multiples fake profiles easilly.
