Hi, I need support due to some vulnerability on the contact form in my website unibio.pt.

It is the same problem that I had in the past with some other website built with joomshapper, and the main problem is that I can't keep the form contact active, because even withe google recaptcha we recieve more than 2000 spam emails per day.

The host provider, said this is a vulnerability on the contact form, where is being used to send emails by the email "[email protected]". Please check the logs file they sent me.

I'll wait for your feedback about this,

Thank you,
Luís

Hi there,

Did you try to apply Google re-captcha? Please let me know after using the Google re-captcha it happens or not.

Same happened to me this week. Spammer used the form. I got 1200 autoreply/day of junkmail that bounced. Was sent by this form. Now my site is offline...The web hosting company is not very happy

The validation question 3+4=? (or something) is far to weak and easy to hack. Captcha MUST be used on this form.
