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 - 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, 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

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

You need to report that to your hosting company. Someone did hack your site, your file space. I don’t think they necessarily hacked it through Dada Mail, though. It could have been any number of paths. Definitely report it, though._______________________________________________Bruce Scherzinger, HME HOA Webmaster * webmaster@PROTECTED *From: *mrivner@PROTECTED mrivner@PROTECTED [Dada Mail Developers]*Sent: *Saturday, August 14, 2021 8:18 PM*To: *Dada Mail Developers Subscriber*Subject: *[dadadev] Redirect of web li ...Continue Reading
