Hi

I recently got an email from someone who said they found my email address from my wordpress site. I am not aware of anyway people can get a personal email, only a contact email such as support@mysite.com, from a Website?


Any idea how to check security vulnerabilities such as this on a WordPress website? Wordpress support forums are poor for specific help such as this.

Thanks

Andrew

You start out by opening a browser and searching for wordpress related vulnerabilities.

Are you using your own domain name for your website?

Yes it's a registered domain site not just a blog.

Did you use your address when you registered your domain?

With which email address your website was registered?

I mean some websites like who.is will give the registered domain contact address and all. Try to check there.

I used godaddy existing account so probably my details in there. I think one of my domain registers doesn't have the privacy option so will be able to see the details on whois come to think of it.
