Hi Quim

I continued to receive further spam on my Maemo Bugzilla for a few days after my original post on this topic, but they have since stopped - yay!

Thanks for tightening up Maemo bugzilla, if I receive any further spam I'll open a bug but of course my email address is probably on a 419 list of email addresses so any future 419 spam I receive may be due to the original harvesting and not due to any new Bugzilla exploits. Lets hope they didn't get too many addresses first time around! :)
