New type of spam misuse

Asked by Manfred Hampl on 2019-03-07

It seems that Launchpad is being misused for a new category of SPAM:

Within the past days several hundred new projects have been registered on Launchpad, all of them related to certification exams and linking to web pages that pretend to offer training information for these exams.

see e.g. https://launchpad.net/projects/+index?text=exam+dumps

If this is undesired, then the Launchpad admins should delete these fake projects and block their creators.
