 Recently [https://make.wordpress.org/support/2015/10/agenda-for-october-
 1st-support-meetup/comment-page-1/#comment-172468 there was an issue] in
 #forums on Slack where a malicious file was uploaded to Slack.

 We should investigate options available to us to prevent this if possible
 in the future.

 To that end, Slack [https://twitter.com/SlackAPI/status/650003726023847936
 tweeted out] the following link to DBot today:

 > "Introducing DBOT — the first Slack integrated security Bot.
 >> "DBOT monitors Slack conversations for URL, File and IP addresses and
 alerts users on malicious content before harm is done."
 >> DBOT automates security intelligence collection and delivers the
 relevant security information in real time via Slack. DBOT is a free &
 open source product and we intend it to keep it this way."
