Ok just received an email from my server saying that my email limit was reach from one of my sub-domains. I am assuming they got access to my server from Kunena anyway to confirm or stop this.....

Or point me to a solution topic...
thanks


here is my hosting companies email

"The emails are being sent from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

There are many many emails being sent to yahoo, msn, and hotmail addresses. It seems that This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. has been hacked. I recommend changing the password for the email account, and locking down any scripts on the website with validation / verification forms.

I also recommend running virus / rootkit / spyware scans on any computers you have used to access your Hostmonster account. "

Also this

"Mail appears to be sending from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Our mail logs show connection from remote SMTP Indicating that the email account is sending from a mail program. If you are not sending this mail then this email account has been compromised. I recommend changing the email password. At 2010-11-28 05:09:30 MST the account sent a single email message addressed to over 200 people. After 150 emails it began to fail due to the outbound email limit. "

any idea what that means besides someone used a mail program to send emails using my account......
