I have had 2 “subscribers” automatically become Users instead of subscribers. They do not appear under Subscribers nor on my MailChimp list. And with edresses such as “firstname.lastname@example.org” furthers the notion that a back-door has been found into WordPress. Thank goodness my setting was on the default User Subscriber rather than editor or admin.
