Spam submitted to Journal

Over the last week or so, I have received at least a couple of hundred emails following the same format:

The email address is not valid. All site users are accounted for. The Journal is set up not to accept registrations and all journal sections require submissions by editors only.I can’t locate any uploaded files on the site apart from those that belong there. So I can’t understand why I’m still getting these emails. Is there some way of turning these notifications off?



This doesn’t look to me like an OJS function. It does look like a form submission from a generic “Contact Us” form on your website.

My apologies, you’re quite right. It looks as if the culprit was an unsecured ‘contact us’ form in a sub-domain of our main site. I’ve secured it now with reCaptcha and we’ll see what happens.

Thanks for your prompt response.
