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

    Hello,
    it’s just a simple question, but I was suspicious, if these e-mails are really sent by wordpress.org 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 WordPress.org-Supportforum mit seinen freiwilligen Helfern zur Verfügung.

    Das WordPress-Team`

    Can you tell me if wordpress.org 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!
    Sincerely
    Brigitte

    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?
