I just returned to the same company after a break and many people had been putting fingers in the wesite. There is an info.txt file with contact info including email. By coincidence we are getting a ridiculous amount of spam and I wonder if the 2 are connected? Spam email harvesters getting the email from info.txt?
And do I need info.txt anyway? I though it was just for Alexa?
Or it could be some "configuration" file for a free contact mailer script or some other program. Believe it or not, there are many out there that work this way so someone just has to edit a plain text file.
