    Thanks for letting me know about the spam, the title “Security Breaches” scared me a bit but I was relieved to know it was related to spam which is not a Security Breach, phew!

    Is there any common denominator to the spam? Are they coming from the same bot, sender? Is the content similar, are the IP addresses related?

    Yes, sorry about the title. I realize it is a bit dramatic. 🙂 The messages all seem to be coming from bots. They are likely from a non English speaking country as the grammar and wording sounds like English is not the primary language. The content is all very similar and is along the lines of, ‘information regarding your account’, etc.

    How are they sending content since the plugin only asks for name, phone and email?

    Feel free to forward me any spam from the sign up plugin to rew(at)beforesite.com and I’ll investigate.

    I will look into adding Googles recaptcha the next release, but I can’t give a date on that.

    hmm, good point

    @pecktron2000 did you have any more details for me or can we mark this as closed for now. If you’d like to be notified when the next version of Easy Sign Up is out you can sing up for notifications here: https://www.beforesite.com/newsletter-sign-up/

    I’m having a similar redirect.
    The site is:
    http://www.millerunion.com/site/home/mailing-list/

    Takes a second and then redirects to Flash Download page which i’m sure is chock full of malware.

    Can’t paste the long link in here?
