Today I got a message from WebsiteDefender that images on my site contains email address and I have to remove them.
The message I got from WebsiteDefender:
One or more email addresses were found on the following pages. The majority of spam comes from email addresses harvested off the internet. The spam-bots (also known as email harvesters and email extractors) are programs that scour the internet looking for email addresses on any website they come across. Spambot programs look for strings like firstname.lastname@example.org and then record any addresses found.
Below there’s a list with the pages that contains emails.
I have checked some of my images and there’s nothing in image title, alt text, caption and description. I don’t know why I got that message and how to resolve it. I am using ‘NextGen Gallery, WP Smush.it and WP Smush.it NextGen Gallery Integration’ plugin for managing my gallery.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
