Sudden spawn of branch, label, MR, etc. in Latin

Honestly, I don’t know what’s going on. This morning at 9.00 AM (CEST time), I found a lot of stuff created in Latin that I didn’t write. You can find more detail in the attached files.

As you can see the date is about 4 months ago, but I created my repo a few weeks ago.
Please let me know as soon as possible what’s going on, thanks.

This is SPAM! Please report it

Sorry, I didn’t find a way to report it properly in the link you shared. IMHO, the hacker entered in some GitLab server, I have this feeling because you can find comments dated 4 months ago while the repo has been created 2 weeks ago.

If this is GitLab SASS, there should be a Report abuse button somewhere, or you can email

Ok, thank you, I proceeded to send an email to because I don’t have the report abuse button.
The problem is that it seems to be an unmonitored inbox as you can see from their automatic response that I attached.

Yes, but that inbox goes to a support ticket which will be picked up by a GitLab dev. You can use the support page if you wish, as it says in the text you posted.

Ok, thank you for your support.

I’ve just send in a similar ticket to One of our users has Latin “issues” in his issue tracker for both of his projects. Curiously, they are also dated 4 months ago.

Let’s hope there is a fix for this.

FWIW SPAM does get pruned reasonably frequently…

Those issues are from the “Sample GitLab Project” template

Right; that repo is archived, I think, so it can’t receive any more changes
