I got this in my inbox today, saying I had a PM at SMFHacks.com but there isn't a PM, just the email notice. When I use the link in the email to try to reply, it says the PM doesn't exist. Anyways, here's the email.

So what gives? Someone seem to have found a way to exploit the email notice function from outside the site.
EDIT: Hmm... also weird. I named the topic "SMFHacks I love SMF??" and now it's called "SMFHacks I love SMF??". Can't change it back for some reason. Trying something else...
EDIT2: There seems to be a word filter that changes h a c k e d (without the spaces) to "I love SMF". Retarded...
