    Hi

    I have noticed that a spammer use contact form 7 to spam people. I think it's possible that the spammer has access to all the members in the mu database.

    My mu install is at ilocals.info

    I have deactivated buddy press as I am not using it and also contact form 7.

    My gmail adddress is used to send these emails. Here's a copy of the spammers email:
    Subject: Increase leads/traffic/Link Building/ Web site Development
    From: <noreply@ilocals.info>
