    Please help me and possibly hundreds of others.


    During the past few days, I have received several emails sent from my "Contact Form" on my Premium Wix Site.
    All of the emails I received were from mailsender@parastorage.com.


    The sender, was asking me for details and pricing of my products etc and wanted to purchase them.
    I was a little sceptical, so did an internet search and came up with this.

    Exploiting Wix for Anonymous Emailing


    Alright so I was messing around on Wix a bit ago and I recorded an interesting request I made.

    POST /wixpress/sendEmail.jspx HTTP/1.1..Host: editor.wix.com..

    After messing around for a bit with it I realized it allows you to send emails via Wix. I thought, what better way to anonymously spam someones inbox. So I rigged up a quick program in AutoIt to test it out.
    _________________________________________________________________________________

    This is now me again - Would you please go to this link and check it out....

    As they, (whoever wishes to use this bit of programming) - are SPAMMING, anonymously, from my site, and heaven only knows how many other Wix sites.

    Could you let me know if these requests I have received are "Legitimate" and just SPAMMING

    OR is it a SCAM - PLEASE get back to me as soon as possible - Thank you

    For the past few days my Wix editor takes forever to load and it runs a unresponsive script that reads parastorage.com on the dialog box that pops up. It is very annoying and idk what it is. I tried everything; re-installing Firefox, clearing up cache and cookies, registry clean, spyware run, and other methods that did not work. It is still there and I cannot edit my site properly.

      I do not want to revert to an old version of my site, then I will lose all new information that I have added. That is not good advice

    I received an email today that appears to be bogus. Read below:


    5:48 AM
    To: +++++@outlook.com
    [Picture of no-reply@parastorage.com]You have a new message
    via: http://www.+++++++++r.com/

    Message details:
    From: emily
    Email: emily@ipincn.com
    Date: 09 November 2013
    Subject: Emergency messages[Intellectual Property about your company!]

    Message:
    [If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks ] Dear President, I’m sorry to disturb you so abruptly. We are the department of registration service in China. We received an application formally. One company named “ TongTianZhong Co.,Ltd " had applied for the Brand Name “ our company name " and some relevant domain names through our body. Now we are handling this registration, and we found that the keyword of these domain names and Brand Name is identical with your company’s. So now we need to confirm a couple of things with you: 1. If your company consigns that company to register these domain names and Brand Name, we will send an application form to them and help them finish the registration at once. 2. If your company has nothing to do with that company, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and Brand Name. We haven’t finished the registration of that company yet, and we have postponed the application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible. In addition, we hereby affirm that our time limit for dissent application is 7 days. If your company files no dissent within the time limit, we will unconditionally approve the application submitted by that company.


    Thank you!

    Hi there, I too have the default parastorage contact form which works well. However it is a real pain trying to find historic emails as every mail that comes through has "mailsender@parastorage.com" in the name field so I then have to open and trawl through every email to find the person that I need to contact. Is there any way that I can change this so as soon as an email from the contact form comes to me I can reply and thus start a "thread" with a named person (i.e named in name field) Hope you understand my drift

      Hey, 
       

      I noticed that you have posted multiple questions on the forum. To receive a more accurate response and to avoid any confusion with overlapping material, please post your question only once.

      This will speed up our response time to you since you will not have to repeat your issue multiple times and explain it to multiple representatives.

      We will be able to consolidate all the tickets details in to one message and therefore help you resolve the problem faster.

      Please click here to see my answer.

    I like using a simple direct email link rather then the form.  Yesterday I got a request for pricing on my Wix contact form.  Is the person requesting the  information legitimate? Is this something that has just started or should I remove the CONTACT form on my website?

    Thanks so much

    • Rapido Wix Team

      Replied by Rapido October 9, 2013

      I am not sure I understand your query- what pricing request are you referring to exactly?

    • lisamchale

      Replied by lisamchale October 9, 2013

      I'm sorry- the question is not specifically about pricing, it refers to my Contact Form. The settings options on the Contact form include my client's name and my name, Lisa, as a B.C.C.  Yesterday was the first time I started receiving messages from , no-reply@parastorage.com.  Each sender was requesting pricing quotes for my clients home repair services.  Primarily I'm trying to understand why information requests have never come through to my email address.  All information goes directly to my clients email address but know it also is emailed to me.

      Thanks again.
      Lisa

      Hi !

       

      have you checked you spam folders in your email mail box?

      When users send information via the contact form, the email addresses listed in "Email to" and "BCC" should receive the emails.

      Have a nice day!

    I believe these people are reading our mail. Because I have a message from a client who sent me a detailed email  from one of those parastorage.com addresses. I also have my suspicion about linkedit.

      Hey,

       

      Parastorage is the service we use as a mailserver for the contact form apps.. I am not sure what is the issue you are describing or who is accessing your email? Please elaborate so we can better understand the issue.

    It seems I'm having the same problems only they have using no-reply@parastorage.com and sterling.cali@yahoo.com. Somehow these people are has gotten into my mail. I don't think WIX is safe to use anymore.
