Hi Joomla
I have tried to contact you on several networking websites but you have no PM system so I’ll post it here

I would like to report a website
https://stellarbonus.joomla.com/blockchain.php

Which I believe it is hosted by yourself

This website came though my email address this morning

The user who sent this email is a hacker, scammer, scumbag

They make people believe that they hacked your email adddress and sent the message though your own email which is a load of BS.

This website needs to be taken down to stop vulnerable people losing their own personal data

Cybercrime is on the high and this needs to be resolved

Thank you for reporting the website. Those boilerplate emails are a known scam.

The website has now been reported through the contact form at https://www.cloudaccess.net/about-us/contact-us.html.

Websites on the free joomla.com or launch.joomla.org service are hosted by CloudAccess.net, an independent web hosting provider, on behalf of Open Source Matters, Inc.

CloudAccess.net has not yet reacted but now at least Google warns about the URL:
