    Hi! I was working on a SASS app a few years ago, so whilst I worked on it I decided to throw up a landing page with an email input CTA, with the intention of emailing the list when the app is finished. Well… I never finished the app. Shock! Anyway, recently (about 18 months on) I decided to check the database out of interest and in the last 2 months I’ve been getting 30-60 emails/day signing up (It had about 50 in its lifetime before this). Wow! is there suddenly interest in this? Did someone link to it? Sceptically I checked my GA account, and it’s showing no traffic. But these are legit emails (I tested them with kickbox). I then checked the access logs to see where this traffic’s coming from as there’s nothing in GA, and it’s all old browsers. e.g. IE8, IE10, Chrome 36, Firefox 31 and seemingly exclusively windows 7 and 8. The IPs always resolve to weird ISPs or Tor too. Obviously this traffic isn’t legitimate, but what I can’t work out is why? They’re not spamming my site, it’s steady traffic across 2 or 3 months. What are they getting out of this? Do I have a vulnerability? Hopefully someone knows – by /hq/OliverEady7 – –
