Over the past couple days I have started receiving massive amounts of email form spam from our website - seemingly in conjunction with me setting up a Wordpress blog on my site. (You get a Joomla component to integrate Wordpress blogging functionality)
The spam always takes the same format:
Name: (Single name)
Email: (Randomly generated)
Subject: (random letters)
Message: (Some form of one-line compliment, almost always containing spelling mistakes)
What I don't understand is how this is happening despite me having CAPTCHA anti-spam on the contact form. I have tried sending email myself without entering the anti-spam but it doesn't seem to work.
I tried making the CAPTCHA longer (4 to 6 digits) in the hopes that it might work, but one minute later I had another spam email in my inbox.
Any ideas?? It's driving me scatty!
