    Hi guys

    Lately I am starting to get quite a lot of spam to couple of my sites. Nothing new right?

    However, what boggles me is that 99% of these spams are Precisely Targeted with my coded emails!
    What I mean is that all my emails I ever use are Coded Specific = Unique to each subscription!

    So how the heck these spamer get these Coded Specific emails...?
    I cannot figure this out. They are mostly older emails, not the most current ones, but still, none of them is the usual or even the "dictionary words dump" one.

    The only idea I came up with is that they are able to hack to my former webhosts (- like I found out with Hostgator = one of the reason I moved my sites from them,) but that would also means that my former hosts are Still keeping 'somewhere' some database of all emails going through their servers..?
    Not very exciting idea...

    Or,
    is there any other way HOW spamers can get these emails?

    I'd be very thankful for the help/explanation

    D

    I guess, seems Nobody knows the answer.
    The only thing I was able to find out till now that most (if not all) of these spams are originating from Chinese webhosts!
    So it seems the communist grip is Not what it used to be. Couple of Gulags would help to get rid of these bastards!

    Hi,

    same thing with me on few sites...
    But my hosting solve the puzzle before me and take care of it for now.
    Look for the file fly.php on your sites root, I found it on mine and it is a kind of a doorway.
