Confirmed. I also get these. The OC team has been notified already. Thank you for addressing this, however.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

It is the same known spammer who was a real plague earlier this year.
We have asked the Opencart team repeatedly to implement a proper anti-spambot tool. Merely blocking him via URL or IP-address isn't enough.

Thank you all respected members for replies.

Let wait for oc's action and solution on this spammer.

Keeping this issue in mind, I have one more query....

Any member can register and login to marketplace and can upload extensions for download (ofcourse it is free extension till his account as seller get approved by opencart..)
As soon as , this extension is uploaded and published, it is open for all to download.

Now my query is
1. Is there any scanning of these uploaded zip files for malware, virus etc ?

2. Is it verified by opencart for security, usability etc. (just like google playstore... each apk is checked and then made available on playstore for download by google)

3. or We need to be depend on comments on that extension - like it is fake or not working at all etc ?

1. You'd have to use the Contact Us link at the footer page for more information on that.
2. Leads to number 3.
