HACKED " Os_watches_shop_august_2013 " 1 Year, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
Just an advisory to let users know that my installation using the "Quickstart" of this template was HACKED!!!! I added no components, plugins or modules. It was a straight out of the box install.

The hack allowed a malicious user to sendmail (THOUSANDS) of emails. There is a hole in this QUICKSTART somewhere.

I do like the template and would like to continue using it - but unfortunately cannot figure out where the hole is.

Developers, can you help resolve this issue?
