Description (last modified by llogan)

I'm dumping these violators into one ticket because I believe they are all from the same few groups due to similarities in products and the spam messages.

Most of these products are continuously spammed on mailing lists, forums, and Q/A sites. The spams are made to look like user replies.

Most are configured with --enable-gpl and --enable-nonfree. None provide the license or source. All have been promoted in spams.

What are they spamming, and what proof do you have for that?

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by llogan

They are spamming software that includes the ffmpeg binary and/or libraries. Typical spam looks like this:
