First, I hope this is the right place for this. if not, move it where it needs to go.
I have a fresh joomla 3 install (downloaded and installed it 4 days ago).
I finally have everything working so I was looking though my logs today when I noticed instances that looked like:
188.8.131.52 - - [27/Dec/2012:14:33:28 -0500] "GET /index.php?option=com_mailto&tmpl=component&link=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5tYXhzb25zLm9yZy9pbmRleC5waHA/b3B0a W9uPWNvbV9jb250ZW50JnZpZXc9YXJ0aWNsZSZpZD0xOTM2Omx5ZGlhcy0xc3QtZGF5LW9mLXllYXItMS ZjYXRpZD01NzpseWRpYS1tYWtlcy0wMDExJkl0ZW1pZD0xMg== HTTP/1.1" 301 468 http://www.domain.com "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Ezooms/1.0; email@example.com)" "-"
I did some searching on the internet and found this was a problem with older versions of joomla. I also found this bug report from 2011: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla ... m_id=24288
My question: Did the bug report fix the problem? Am I just seeing "attempts" at spamming or is it getting through? For now, I've disabled email in the global config. If this is a problem, I'll just block it using htaccess...if it is just attempts then I'm ok with the bogus stuff in the log....
