Hacking with registering new users? (3 posts)

    Hi everyone
    I think I got attacked by some hacking because back couple of weeks I receive almost hundreds of new registered users in my website http://www.mondelio.org.

    I found very strange that during a wend so many people have registered with the same email domain: princeton-edu.com (which doesn't exist).

    I am deleting all of them after I tried to contact some of them. What can a registered user as a Subscriber can do to damage a WordPress site?

    What can a WordPress Admin do to avoid bulk registration or prevent any hacking to be happened?

    I have installed the Back up plugin so I will make a Back up and I must say [****] the HACKER! The website is a NON profit organization that wants to help poor young people in the world to study and get a better life. Everyone should support and not attack but the someone is CRAP.

    I do not know all the possibilities, but just having a profile with links can allow them to begin making simple use of your site.

    Moderate registration. Registration is available at only one of the four sites I watch over, and registration at that site cannot be completed without admin approval...and I have deleted many pending accounts over these past few weeks.
