    Question SPAM or something more?

    Hello I keep getting enquiries with a bunch of messages looking like this:


    Is that just spam or is it an attack on my website? Looks like a bunch of links to chinese websites but could just be a bunch of junk

    If anyone experiences these emails let me know and tell me what you do with them. I just put them in the trash.

    Thanks,

    You can ignore, delete them and don't click the links. It can be either trying to get you to click or trying to use your form to deliver a payload to your account. osCMax is not vulnerable to the payload delivery, but you could be if you click the links included in the message.

    Oh, if you were silly enough to click on any of the links, time to do a full virus / malware and trojan scan on your computer.

    It might be worth installing a captura form on your contact us page as this should stop these automated spam attacks.
