Your website has been hacked

Today I got an email through the form I created on my website. It says my website has been hacked and they need $3000 in bitcoins. (Also they didn’t mention if the amount is US or CAD :crazy_face:)
My website is on, but I’m scared. No one likes to get hacked, even Vlad Magdalin. What should I do?
I tried to export my website as a backup, but it seems I’m allowed to do that.

Few of my clients had also received the same message. I’m not a security expert but it’s probably just spam. Please add Recaptcha if not already done.

I got the same message yesterday and today, among other various spam messages through the contact form, which is why I am assuming it is just spam. It is irritating, though, so any advice how to stop it would be appreciated!

This is a phish to get you to act on the spammers wishes which is to separate you from your hard earned money. Solution: Delete it.

You could potentially enable reCaptcha but that won’t stop someone from manually filling in a form. Some bots yes, but at the expense of website performance impact of using it.

Thank you guys, for sharing your experience and giving solutions. :heart:

Are you seriously telling me you believed they hacked your website?

How is it possible I am receiving this same email, even though we use 3th party Jotform forms on the website that only use a script block, yet still end up in my webflow account?
