Earlier this week, we began receiving reports of spam caused by Reddit Applets. Instead of running Applets with new posts for a specific subreddit, the trigger searched across many different subreddits.
This may have caused your Reddit Applets to run unexpectedly and with content unrelated to the subreddit of your choosing. We sincerely apologize for this.
We take matters and mistakes like this very seriously at IFTTT. After a thorough investigation we have determined that this issue was not caused by any changes made on the IFTTT side.
We have reported this issue to the Reddit team and put in place additional checks to prevent this from happening in the future.
