Attempted hack?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've just received an 'enquiry' via my shop with the following in the message:

 

[spam link removed]

 

This is obviously very suspicious, is this a common attack. any tips of info would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Rob.

I'm feeling lucky today......maybe someone will answer my post!

I do try and answer a simple post when I can just to give something back.

That looks more like spam sent through your contact page that was cleansed with the XSS add on.

Thanks for the replies guys.

 

I've not yet performed the list of things to do if a hack is suspected. Defitetly on my list of things to do now though.

 

So mdtaylorlrim - you said it looks as spam sent through my contact page has been cleansed with the XSS add on. If this a standard feature? I am using OS v2.2 RC2a.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Regards,

 

Rob.

No, it is not, but you should do all those things listed in the first topic of this forum to prevent attacks.

 

The garbage could also simply be some idiot that does not know how to form url links properly.
