Am I being hacked ?

  • Hi – Recently a number of folks with cryptic looking gmail addresses have registered on my site. This myabe normal for you, but no one has ever registered a user in the past for my site 🙁
    Should I be concerned that Im being hacked ?
    How can I tell if I am ?

  • You’re not necessarily hacked, but since you’ve optioned that anyone can register, I suppose you get spam registrations. You might want to have a captcha or something for people who register, otherwise I think you’ll be stuffed with spam in no time. Did the new registrants already post anything? What’s the default role for a new registrant, subscriber I hope?

    Hi Gangleri
    Thanks for the response
    Yep – default role is subscriber
    Curiously & the main reason Im suspicious about this activity is that these guys havent commented on anything; just registered
