Spam in Bugzilla

Hi!

There is surge of spam bug reports with support phone numbers of
various companies. I remember couple of such reports made ~ 2-3 weeks
ago.

I think will be good idea to block IP-addresses or their range, if
Bugzilla support this, since a-mails are different.

This is completely out of control. There have been almost a thousand of these created today. This has to stop.

These things take time, and unfortunately, we don't have 24/7 support.
Anton is dealing with it right now, should be better soon.

cheers,

They're (obviously) fake numbers that direct you to scammers.

That probably won't work, they use proxies. We had a similar problem on our wiki. The only way I managed to stop it was by adding a regex that blocks all added text that looks like a toll-free US phone number (with support for filtering out some obfuscation). It has some false positives from time to time, but it's the only way I've found to contain the problem.
