    Hey

    Yesterday I created a test account on my site using my (Email address hidden if logged out) email address.

    In the early hours of this morning that same email address sent out a spam email to everyone in my contacts. What’s weird is that in the link it says wp and mentions the akismet plugin which I have activated on my site.

    Have you heard of this before and could it be linked to creating an account? The last thing I want is for everyone who creates an account having the same thing happen.

    Kind regards

    Kate

    Hey!

    Afaik Akisment is a reliable/trustworthy service and I didn’t came across something similiar yet. Akismet is a service by automattic – this company stands behind wordpress.com, wordpress.org and other famous services…

    Regards,

    Peter
