Is Everett starting to pimp girls with classified ads? Very Happy
Looks like some members had their emails hacked.
Anyways probably will be disabling my emails from here.

Yup, I've received over 100 as of this morning and have forwarded a few to Everett. Was unfortunate, because at first, I thought my sales were up!

All of the sexy e-mails I received were not sent by registered users, so I don't think it was a hack - just an intrinsic weakness in the system. However, it *should* be one that is hard to exploit on a large scale (but what do I know about security?)

The email addresses all seem to be different also. Thanks to the notification system, it doesn't seem that they have personal email addresses.

Ya I checked and I had my emails disabled. So thesamba's notification system worked well in this instance.

Are we sure this isn't everett's valentines gift to the members?

Arggggg, massive spam this morning.

Nothing is hacked, this is normal spam that the site usually blocks but as someone above said, they used a TON of different emails so a lot got through the site.

I am blocking it all now.

This is the downside of allowing users that are not logged in to contact sellers.
I was hoping I didn't have to change that but if it becomes an issue like this, I may have to do it.

Thanks for fixing this issue. You got my vote,if you want to change it, to be logged in to contact sellers.

Everett,

If you are going to disable folks from contacting users unless logged in maybe you can have an option I can set so that I can allow it?

You can also block any messages that come though with that site in the text of the message.

Just set up a regular expression to look for banned sites.

This may be something I do in the future - allow people to switch "Allow only registered users to contact me" as an on/off switch.
There are already members who do not want to sell to anyone but registered users.
This would not stop registered users though as there are spammers who join the site first.

Yes, this is how it works. Words and phrases are blocked, among other things.

It's been my experience that most unregistered users do not follow through with a purchase. To each his own preferences.

A few people have told me they got messages today.

These are not new messages, they are messages from Friday that were delayed along the way for some reason.

I have verified this with everyone who has contacted me.
The messages they got were sent through the site on Friday.

I'm posting this in case anyone is confused by this or think they got "new" messages.
