My PHPlist is constantly being attacked

Postby Loughlin » 9:37pm, Wed 28 Mar, 2007

Hi,

Over the last few weeks I have been getting very strange messages from PHPList telling me things like:

---------------------
Some errors occurred in the PHPlist Mailinglist System
URL: mywebsite.c0m/mailouts/admin/?page=export&list=10
Error message(s):

Error: You do not have enough privileges to access this page
---------------------

and I also get about 5 or 6 'people' a week signing up for my mailout but using my domain as their email address.

I assume this is someone trying to export my user list without my permission. It's worrying - has anyone else come across this kind of thing.

I'm confident security in PHPList is strong but what extra precautions should I be taking to protect myself and my list members from this kind of behaviour?

Thanks,

Loughlin

I can't remember having seen this before. You might post this issue in this thread: http://forums.phplist.com/viewtopic.php?t=3402

This has happened to a number of users, as you will see in the above mentioned thread.
