  • E-mails stolen

    Hello,

    Is it at all possible that somehow my users' emails were stolen? I am extremely worried about this as a lot of my members received the same spam (related to the topic of the forum).

    Thanks,

    Dan

    If you have allowed non-registered users to view the user profiles of members, be aware that there are very sophisticated spiders and bots out there these days, that CAN "datamine" that information. I have disabled that for non-members, as well as set (via the Admin CP) the option of NEVER showing user email addresses. We have no problems.

      Yeah, I would never have the site show the e-mail address. vBulletin has a built in form that users can use to e-mail each other, without ever revealing their e-mail address.
