    HTML form compromised

    I am a novice web developer, and I have never posted before, but I am in need of help if anyone has any advice.

    I have several web sites which contain forms allowing visitors to input information (such as sign-up forms, or to make reservations), and this information is sent in an email to the respective clients for each site.

    In the past week to 2 weeks, the information that is collected from forms on several of my sites has included random email (ex. rspvhlebe@bowlwny.com), and it seems as though each form is being submitted 8-10 times in a 10-20 second period of time with several random names and emails in the form fields (including fields that are not text boxes).

    I contacted the hosting company that hosts my sites, they were not aware of any other similar problems on their servers. They suggested that I try to find help in an online community.

    Does anyone have any idea as to what is happening and how I can make it stop?

    Thanks in advance
    Joe

    for umm, form forum?

    Well jcpaww, welcome to the forums, this is your first post so I don't blame you, but I believe that this forum is for issues involving the Sitepoint forums. If this doesn't get moved you should post a thread in the "web security" forum. Anyway, I think if you check out these threads you may get some insight into your problem
