I think my contact me page has been hacked? I am getting sitebuilder submission messages to my email which are just random numbers and letters. They are increasing in frequency and I am now afraid to open them. What should I do?

Hello Ciara,

This sounds like a so-called bot annoying your form.

The best protection against this sort of nuisance is the addition of a "Captcha" module which is an option in the Form building module. Once that is deployed, there will be very few annoyances of this kind happening.

Hello Clara,

I agree with Gop that this sounds like you're receiving spam submissions via your Yola Form. The best way to combat this is to add a Captcha Feature.
