    SOLVED Getting lots of spam returns (mailer deamon) on my site

    Posted 3 weeks 6 days ago
    • Hi,

      Sinds a few weeks back, im starting to have kind of returned spam mails (mailer deamon from own server)
      A few weeks back my host package wat transferred from DirectAdmin to a server with Plesk. (dont know if this is crucial to know.)

      Joomla is up-to-date, all ext. and plugins are updated, an i dindt install any other software for a while.
      Use DirectAdmin Toolz, RSFirewall. But that didnt seemed to work either...

      The most of the spam mails are "sended" trough my mailserver OR website server.

      Sometimes they use the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. credentials, and sometimes from others
      Line 37 - the subject also changes always, as also the line on 42 - as you can see in the "Secure" area

      Anyone a clue how to deal with this, or someone ever heard of this problem?
      Kind regards

    • This will be because you have not delete the "contact" (components > contact) supplied with the rocketlauncher, therefore hackers can exploit this by just typing a url that will use it. So, just delete the "contact" that you are not using.

    • I think you nailed it!
      I searched everything, but not that one because i dont use that components- contact
      Your a life saver
      thnx

      p.s: Can it be, that i will have the next feww days still receive Mailer-Deamon (return mails) ?
      Because i had again a few of those mails..
      How long does it take for an email to come back as returned mail (mailer deamon) , one day, or few weeks?

    • It really depends on the server it was sent to... but usually a maximum of a couple of days.
