    Hi there,
    can someone tell me when you get an email to a predetermined email address, and the email is about your website and it says new user registration. When you go to the users in the sidebar on your wordpress dashboard and they come under subscriber and of course your their as admin of your site. The question is how does a new user registration get there. I have a email subscriber email, it does not come from there and not my RSS so l am wondering where are they registering can anyone break my stupidity l don't know.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. It sounds like someone just accessed wp-login.php?action=register on your site.

    Hi esmi,
    so what form do they fill out l really don't get the answer. Are you saying they type wp-login.php?action=register ocdsite.com into the address bar and this is how they register. The main thing is there is no breach of security. Why don't they just sign up for the email newsletter instead of going that route.

    Anyone - including any bot - can access http://your_domain/wp-login.php directly. That's not a security issue.

    hmmm... this happened to me too, and I don't recognize the email, maybe it's a bot like you said.

    Should I be worried?
    Should I just ignore it?
    How do I delete this?
    What do you suggest I do about this?

    thank you!
