Support » Fixing WordPress » malware or bot?

  • This is a duplicate post, because wordpress forum seems to have disabled my last post.

    Perhaps it is because I pasted in an excerpt of a strange junky email I got today from one of my sites,

    The email was trying to sell insurance or something, seemed to be written by a program. Also recently, there seems to have been some malware trying to add users and comments. Has anyone seen this? Is it dangerous?

    I just removed any direct reference to my email adress es on the site, by the way, in case that was the issue.

  • do you have akismet on your site? Emails like that can be quite common, and a pain in the ass if you don’t have proper spam filtering
