During the scan our scanner will try to fill out all forms (including order forms). This test can cause an extreme amount of email traffic. This means your website allows this without limitation. And if we can cause this much traffic, so can anyone else!
To prevent these so called “mail bombs” you can take the following precautions before the scan takes place:
- Any emails/orders from the email adres “firstname.lastname@example.org” can be deleted or blocked on your mail server, for instance by blacklisting this email address.
- We recommend placing additional security on all available forms. Google reCaptcha is the most commonly used solution for this.
