v11.15.0 Released!

August 31st 2021 UTC

Hello everyone, v11.15.0 has been released! Download and install: https://dadamailproject.com/d/install_dada_mail.pod.html This version has protection from link prefetching, which can cause havoc on a mailing list’s functions. I’m not even kidding. Here’s a blog post showing an example of how this can happen in something as widely used as Apple’s Mail app: https://blog.dadamailproject.com/2021/08/31/link-prefetching-protection-in-dada-mail-v11-15-0-and-other-security-enhancements/ I’m suggesting this is one of those, ...Continue Reading

Message Link Prefetching Issue

August 24th 2021 UTC

Howdy everyone, I’m working on the problem of email services/readers (Gmail) visiting links within the message to do whatever they do when they do that (scan the content for bad things, mostly - but also useful things like previewing the page in a popup). Link prefetching itself isn’t really a terrible thing, but it leads to perhaps bad side effects when it comes to links in email messages that do things, like subscribe or remove someone from a mailing list. Dada Mail has some protection for this, most specifically for ...Continue Reading

Re: Redirect of web link to a phishing website

August 19th 2021 UTC

Happy to help!  Mary Ann Mary Ann, Thank you.  That is exactly what happened.  When I examined the clickthrough links both in the tables dada_clickthrough_url and dada_clickthrough_url_log I found the malicious links.  I removed all these records even though it seems that the links that were important were in dada_clickthrough_url The redirect_id was the number in the link and the url was the malicious link.  Removing the Mysql records fixed the problem.  Mary Ann without your gu ...Continue Reading

Re: Redirect of web link to a phishing website

August 18th 2021 UTC

So, a message sent by one of your subscribers in a discussion list had that malicious link. To prevent that, you may have to turn on moderation, and just double-check messages, before they’re sent to your entire list. Nothing else seemed… fishy about the message sent out? Was the message also then archived? Did your host run a scan on your site, and find the malicious link that way? In the future, I could add a feature that would not apply the Dada Mail redirect to certain URLs - like bit.ly - but that wo ...Continue Reading

RE: Redirect of web link to a phishing website

August 15th 2021 UTC

Thanks, my hosting company does know about it which is why they shut my websites down.  As mentioned, I looked for all redirects not in dadamail and could not find any.  I also did searches on the dadamail databases and could not find anything.  Shutting down dadamail by renaming the directory and mail.cgi to mail.xxx, eliminated the error.  Now my sites were scanned and are clean.  My website is back up but dadamail is not running.  Obviously, I would like my discussion lists active again. ...Continue Reading

Re: Redirect of web link to a phishing website

August 15th 2021 UTC

This is redirected using the clickthrough tracking feature of Dada and is not necessarily a hack. In PHPMyAdmin, go to the dada_clickthrough_urls table and find the redirect ID & message ID from the bad link and see what the URL is for it in the table. It could be that the website it was linking to got hacked or bought and redirected all links to something nefarious. If the link in the URL field is not what was originally linked in the mailing, you have a problem. Mary Ann You need to report that to your ...Continue Reading
