Several buddypress members have just complained (some with a disabled account) that they have received more than 1000 emails informing them of acceptance to become “friends”
I did not activate the logs. I have the latest versions of worpdress, buddypress … as well as “All In One WP Security” plugin
Do you have an idea how was it possible?
and what interest for a hacker?
It is a common issue on BuddyPress. There are bots to do it.
This is why we created Friendship restrictions plugin.
You do have our membership, so I will suggest using
Just rate limit the number of requests a user can send per hour and it will limit the damage.
You are welcome.
Pirates do it because they believe they can swindle people and BuddyPress is a development in progress, so they may add it in future.
For now, It is not available and that’s where we come to provide the functionality.
