I suspect the Anker and Soundcore community platforms share the same person as Admin, and the admin is not doing anything to stop malvescents.
Anker is an older platform with diverse topics, but right now very few prizes. Soundcore is about 3 years younger with less diversity (music or brand products) but weekly prizes.
So these drive the bots and spammers differently.
Anker gets hit with a spammer twice each working day, implying it’s a funded professional plan with humans trying to insert links to sites with basically ultimately steal money. There’s no profit in points as no prizes of note. As the profit is in making you click on a link, they have a few crafted posts daily.
Anker example spam, this is a post with link
And this one they posted without link to try to get below the radar then edited it later with a link
They did another cleverer method I won’t share.
You see as few benefits in points the adding of new members are slow and are mostly humans who then seek support, observe a new member on average every few hours.
This Soundcore community is being attacked differently for the prizes mostly, to accumulate points to then win the giveaway when the person wants the prize. As the least effort for most gain is a new account which gets a welcome new members points, it’s easier to make many new members then when a prize comes up then bid from many accounts. So observe a new member every 2 minutes on average.
So for example the bot is currently running making a new account every 2 mins
The admin, if they were present, would see the new accounts from the same IP and stop them.
What Lum is doing is causing a 3rd type of malvescent, of getting people to go to a music to then profit from that music. That involves posting new threads with link to Lum.
So prizes and outcomes:
- Anker: prize is the search engines for a popular brand , to insert links to sites to steal money, a few done each day by a human to look real.
- Soundcore: prize is giveaway so a person has written a script to make new accounts to then accumulate points to win giveaway
- Lum: get people to click on music link to ultimately make money.
