    Definate spam hack from this forum.

    Yup, I got two spam emails too.

    It *definitely* came from this site. I own an entire domain and I use a different email address with every site I subscribe to. I include the name of the site in the email address. I do this as it makes it easier to filter out spam if an address is sold on, and to inform site operators that they have a problem.

    The emails addressed me as tankslappa, my name on here, and were sent to
    steve-mp3car@mydomain_name

    The headers look like someone has managed to hack the emails through vbulletin as the original sender is the exim mail system on the forum.

    Return-Path: <[email protected]>

    Is there any relationship to whether (1)admins or (2) members can email you (as opposed to PMs)?

    I haven't been hit yet AFAIK, but I disabled both a few days ago.
    The default setting is (was) admins can email you, others not.

    I haven't been hit yet, either (knock on wood), and I only have admins can email you and email notifications turned on.

    (i imagine the admins would have checked all this, but just in case)

    my initial impression was that this was sent via admincp->users->send email to users, i.e.:

    /admincp/email.php?do=start

    so id be checking admincp->stats and logs->control panel log for uses of email.php script, and find out if that was the cause (i.e., an admins account was hacked).

    Has anyone checked the SQL database to see if it is vulnerable to SQL injection?
