False Subscriptions (6 posts)

    My site has over 52 subscriptions in the past week and my site is very new. I notice that they all end in hotmail.com and has weird letters and numbers. I have already included for people to confirm through email. Are these fake subscriptions and how do I prevent this?

    I do not find anything malicious, though all the new subscriptions coming from hotmail.com emails is a bit baffling. Did you get email confirmations?

    Anyway, be watchful and see if any similar particular pattern emerges that may indicate involvement of rogue bots.

    hello,
    There is something definitely bad going on with my subscriptions. I deleted two subscription plugins and I am still receiving false subscriptions now 20 a day. I don't know what to do!
