I got a message today form my hosting provider saying that my account has been used to send mass emails. These emails were being sent from the Oscomerce contact form.

 

I my self recive a ton of emails that were spam from the contact form.

 

How can I fix the contact form to prevent this?

My hosting company still said I am having that problem. Where the contact form is being used for spamming or sending mass emails. I'm with www.godaddy.com.

 

I used this contribution: Contact us Contribution

 

AND I USED THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS/FIXES IN IT.

 

I created a robots.txt file option 1.

I did option 2 "Disallow emails to be sent FROM? your domain"

I did option 3 "Contact Us Form Vunerability Fix"

I did option 4 "Contact form issue/ textarea bug"

I did option 6B "Contact Us Spam bot."

I did option 7A "Contact Us Spam Relay."

 

Shouldn't this patch or fix the contact form to prevent people from using it to send spam/mass email?

 

Anyone else have this problem or is that contribution garbage?
