Mail Script Hacked

Recommended Posts

Hey all:

 

Someone hacked into my OSC mail script and was sending out mass quantities of e-mail. My host shut my site down. I'm trying to figure out what/where/why this happened. What do I need to do to prevent this from happening again?

The first thing you can do is ensure tell a friend is turned off in your shop admin.

 

Then delete tellafriend.php

 

What version of osc are you using?

 

Cheers

It was on. Now turned off.

 

Then delete tellafriend.php

 

Now deleted.

It's an old one - 2.2? I've been running it for at least 10 years.

 

Anything else I should look at?
