Support » Everything else WordPress » I get E-Mails from twice a week

  • Resolved kermit0df


    it’s just a simple question, but I was suspicious, if these e-mails are really sent by or if they are phishing-mails or even contain viruses in the links instead.
    The content is always the same:
    “`Hallo! Einige Plugins auf deiner Website https://*.de wurden automatisch auf ihre neueste Version aktualisiert. Es ist keine weitere Aktion deinerseits erforderlich.

    Diese Plugins sind jetzt auf dem neuesten Stand:
    – All-in-One-Marketing von HubSpot – Formulare, Popups, Live-Chat (von Version 8.8.12 auf 8.8.15)

    Wenn du irgendwelche Fehler feststellst oder Unterstützung benötigst, steht dir das mit seinen freiwilligen Helfern zur Verfügung.

    Can you tell me if really sends an information about updates every week, sometimes even twice a week? I can’t imagine that they update the software this often.

    Thank you in advance for your answers!

    Thank you very much! I changed the setting.

    Similar issue, I too am getting the “Howdy” emails, but they are going to the wrong email somehow. Where do I change or stop these emails?

    I am still getting these e-mails after changing the settings.
    As you say, mmcgrath01, these emails are not sent to the adress given here at WordPress, but to the one I use for my business, i.e. the one in the contact form of my website.
    Any suggestions how to stop these emails?
    Thank you.

    It may be a coincidence, but I’ve noticed that these emails come more often when I open them. To me this looks like they are Spam or even contain malicious code in the links.
    This was my orignal question: Are these emails safe or does the sender only use the WordPress-adress to make me click on the link to get a virus on my system?
