Trello being used to spread malware / spam


I maintain a blog where a spammer is posting comments that point to sites on

These in turn point to tinyurl sites link to malware, promote porn or illicit downloads.

These are some examples (done as a screenshot image file, so not clickable):



I assume this is taking up space and bandwidth for your systems, as well as increasing the likelihood of getting Trello put on personal or corporate blacklists.  I wouldn't like that - I like Trello!

This should go to Atlassian as they can, and will, shut down Trello accounts doing this sort of thing (we've seen a load of bots do much the same with Jira Clour recently).

There's no "formal" route for that at the moment though, so I've asked Atlassian to work off this post!

This is a list of the 220 links they have submitted (edited so they ae not active hyperlinks):
