Somehow guests are able to send pm's which contain spam & virus

Post by Poppie on December 17th 2010, 10:53 am

G'day
I have this problem...today I have received a number of pm's from guests which are obviously rubbish...my co administrator has also received them...I have put a warning on my forum for the members but I don't know if they have been able to access the member emails...I cannot understand how a guest can access my forum...this is serious...I cannot take a chance with getting virus's on mine or members computers through spammers...PLEASE HELP!
Thanks Poppie

PS...Could you also please tell me how is it that guests can access our pm's when guests have absolutely no access to my forum??? Thanks!

OMG...that is exactly what we are receiving re the contact anyway...my co admin sent me an urgent email warning me not to open so I have just been deleting them but I am positive it is the same as per the rubbish in the contact!

To the Forum Help People...don't worry about replying as someone has answered the question on a post above...

Remove the contact link at the bottom of the footer.
