Ok, I just deleted all pages (and images) that has a link to
www.aneesoft.com

I did this using an O2 script that I just wrote for it, which you can see
more details about it here:

http://www.o2platform.com/wiki/O2_Script/Removing_Spam_pages_from_OWASP_website_%2828_Jun_2010%29

There was actually not a lot to do since they used the same images on all
pages (although since we had already delete some pages (including the user
page)) I might have missing something.
