unwelcome guests...

Hello,

 

I am new to this forum and have several mostly functional OS commerce sites linking from my web site.. I need a little help... My site www.bandsawboxes.net is generating up to 40 emails a day from addresses like, "and" or "all" or "six"... At first, I just deleted, but that became quite a hassle, so I started checking who was online when the emails would come in.. I do not open them, but see that they have a string of nonsensical words in english...

 

I used a "who is" site to determine where they were located and found that they are coming from many places - I have started capturing the info - location and what relay or whatever they are using...

 

 

My question is - are we under some kind of attack? My son is our web master, and is quite busy with a new baby, so I am on my own here -

 

the email addresses are obviously not real - and when I look at the properties etc, I see addresses like:

 

mailto:that

 

of course, if I went to my site and tried to email us with an address like that, it would not work..

 

I just need a little guidance here...

 

(and a LOT of help with our site... I am looking forward to learning how to make the sites sing!!"

 

Thanks for any input or advice.
