Could you post a screenshot of the spam devices? Usually, PRTG just scans your network and if it matches a certain filter, they get categorized into groups.

And those devices do exist in your network, i.e. are pingable?

Welp, that one went under the radar. Sorry! Are you actually using a device template for the discovery? Can you send me a screenshot of the device settings itself? What does nslookup say about the FQDNs?
