[Resolved] [Plugin: Subscribe2] My site was hacked and sent out mass emails from this plugin
I was just notified by my host that I was sending out 20000 emails and was in violation of TOS for sending more then allowed. I replied WHAT IN the world are you talking about.
They said this plugin was sending out the emails. The strangest part was that the email had content and a link to my site and looked as if I had actually done the email list. Problem is NO ONE set up the list or attempted to send these emails out, yet it happened.
This is not the first time I have seen strange behavior using this plugin and figured since was updated would have corrected the backdoor that was left that allowed people to post content to my site through the plugin.
This post is directed at the makers, since there was no contact link and stated to post on the forum.
I need answers as to how someone was able to access my site through your plugin and was allowed to create an email list.
