74 Eastbourne Rd ROBOROUGH EX14 5HN
Anyone know anything about the fake orders in woocommerce on wordpress using an address 74 Eastbourne Rd ROBOROUGH EX14 5HN
I had a comment from a postal worker today saying they are getting about 20 parcels and letters a week which are being sent to the fake address in Honiton the EX14 postcode area.
It goes to show that store owners are not being careful enough when checking addresses before sending items out, if you have sent a product to the fake address and not received it back, try contacting the Honiton sorting office.
It looks likes it adds them as a User to your WordPress installation
They are listed as a Customer – The username added to my site was bbbbb bbbbb
Looks like they are looking for weaknesses to exploit – More about it on WordPress Support Forum here – https://wordpress.org/support/topic/failed-orders-fake-information/
More information can now be found here – https://developer.woocommerce.com/2020/11/05/woocommerce-4-6-2-fix-release/
Judging by recent comments it looks like this is spreading and becoming more common.
I also had it happen to another of my little test sites again with another fake order coming though using the 74 Eastbourne Rd ROBOROUGH address.
One of the commenters below also reports that his site was hacked with an SQL injection
What to do about the Fake Orders – What I have done
It’s pretty easy to spot that they are fake Woocommerce orders so you can just cancel them, another thing to note though is it creates a new User in your WordPress Admin panel.
Rather than just deleting this user what I did was edit the User to change the email address, change the password and at the same time ensure they are logged out of all locations.
