Server sending out junk email to me (and customers?)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I tried seaching first, but didn't come up with anything.

 

My website, first of all, is http://www.milkypop.com

 

Lately I've been getting a LOT of junk email that is apparently being sent through the contact form on my site. It is all labeled as such:

 

[email protected]

[email protected]

[email protected]

[email protected]

[email protected]

 

"linhostssl02.mesa1.secureserver.net" is the address of my server (I go through godaddy.com).

 

The content of these emails is this:

 

"1eb7b33c43b5519a801f871090307e2b

" <[email protected]>.

MIME-Version: 1.0

X-Mailer: osCommerce Mailer

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

 

 

[email protected]"

 

but sometimes even contains THIS:

 

"UPDATE VERY HOT SECTOR FOR INVESTMENT

 

Universal Property Development & Acquisition Benchmark Coverage To Be Initiated By Investrend Research

 

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2005--(Investrend Research Syndicate) Universal Property Development & Acquistion Corp. (OTCBB: UPDA - News) has enrolled in the unique shareholder empowerment platform administered by Investrend Communications, Inc., a provider of financial intelligence programs. Benchmark research coverage will be initiated by an Investrend Research analyst to be assigned in the next few days."

 

(it goes on for a lot more).

 

What is going on here? Is this a security problem? Apparently this is getting sent out to other people, because occaisionally I get an email from a random person with the subject of "Remove me from your list!"

 

Please help...
