This has been going on for nearly a year. I use an email address specifically for tdiclub and I started getting these messages early 2019. I still get them occasionally (got a new one yesterday). A couple of us brought it up then but I'm not sure if anything was ever done.

I think I'm going to change my password here (to something new/unique) and see if the spam starts referencing the new password. That should tell us if the site is still hacked.

Edit: I'll add that I looked at the bottom of the page and see the site runs "vBulletin" version 3.8.5. The current released version is 5.5.6. Also, a quick Google search shows that there are multiple exploits that affect the version tdiclub runs. Hard to tell if they actually affect the site configuration, but it's always a good idea to keep the website software up to date.
