    Security issue using site shapers.

    Posted 4 months 1 week ago
    • I recently experienced a security issue, that apparently according to the Joomla Facebook forum post I have made, others have experienced as well. When installing a Rocket shaper, in my case Myriad, the uncategoprized contact Myriad (installed on the rocketlauncher becomes corrupted and sends spam email in the name of the administrative contact email.

      I fouond that one of my sites had been spamming like this:

      to me

      Why is this message in spam? It seems to be an auto-reply to a message that pretended to be sent from your email address.
      Report as not spam
      This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

      A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
      recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

      I tried but was unable to find any corrupted files in the site. Do you know anything about what would cause the contact that you installed to be able to do this? There is only one component installed, and so no plug in or extention on my part should have anything to do with this.

    • I have no idea what a "shaper" is?

      But the issue you describe does not come about because of a corruption. When you install a "rocketlauncher" package as part of that we provide a Joomla contact (which the contact form in the demo uses). If you decide not to use the contact form (and therefore don't edit the contact provided) - or you add another contact (and don't delete the contact we provide) then it is possible for hackers to use a standard joomla url to open the joomla contact form using that contact (even if you have no active menu item).

      So. To stop the spam simply delete the contact AND remove it from trash.

      I also recommend that you should enable recaptcha plugin anyway to stop bots submitting your contact forms anyway.

      Regards, Mark.
