I have this crazy situation with the same spammer. They fill out my contact form with tons of crap and send it to me.
So I took the form down. And its still coming. How do they do that.?
This is very interesting and has really caught my attention.
Maybe they find out your mail address and then they don't need your form.
Nope .. Its coming in thru a form php script. .
I may have had an ole form I used in the development process so I deleted the entire site and reloaded it. My fingers are crossed. I guess now I will have to put a capture on the form.
These spammers are such low life its fun ending reign.
If the php file is there which was processing the input from the form and it accepts the same data then it will happen again.
The spambot just stored the attributes of the form and after the first successfull spamming it doesn't visited the form once just sent requests to the processing end which was specified in the action attribute of the form html tag and with the input parameters which was available/needed in the form.
I could hide the form data in an include. Would that work?
How can I make a form that is protected from such an attack.
may be your form not used captcha
