Email spam from plugin (?)

    I am getting email spam. Various addresses (some from .ru and .fr) The emails subject is [Feedback from: Andy Templeton Photography] The only copy in the message is a repeat of the name and email address link below that. I installed a captcha on the contact page and even changed the status of that page to draft. Still coming. They are not coming through my email system hosted by my website host. I checked the log. My website hoist sent me this.

    The IP address from which these message originate is different for each message.
    I was unable to spot the exact plugin responsible for these feedback mails, so please revise your WordPress installation from your end and make sure to disable or re-configure the plugin responsible for these messages.

    I really have no idea what this entails. Should I hire someone or is this something simple (like me)? Looking for help. Thank you!

    Hi there,

    I checked your site and it appears you’re in the wrong forum. Your site is using the open source WordPress.org software and you need to seek help at these forums:

    https://wordpress.org/support/forums/

    These forums are for WordPress.com hosted sites only. Since we do not have access to self-hosted WordPress.org sites, we are unable to provide any direct assistance to your issue. I would reach out to your site host for help.

    If you want to know more about the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org you can read this document:

    Thanks!
