Weird Emails

For the last few days I’ve been getting weird feedback emails for all of my websites. I get 3-4 of them with random bogus addresses at my website’s domain and containing empty multipart MIME messages containing only the mime section headers. It looks like someone is trying to hack my feedback forms, most likely a spammer. Those forms have always been able to send email only to a particular hard-coded address. I secured all of the forms to prevent them from being accessed in any way other than from my webpage and I eliminated the PHP files so they’re now stored entirely within the site’s content management system.

I think it’s time to take some more drastic action against spammers. It’s gone beyond annoying to the nightmare stage. I’m almost at the point of giving up email & shutting down all of my websites, since I waste too much of my time dealing with spam.
