Site hacked?

In my inbox this morning were probably 20 messages from Pilots n Paws, each with Asian characters in the header. Was the site hacked?

Hi Jill - can you forward one to me (either PM or email - [email protected])? We had a few users from China signup and send some spam on Sunday overnight.. but haven't seen anything since.

Apologize for the infux of unwanted messages - we've since (Sunday) started to manually approve new users and proactively block users from certain areas that are prone to spam only.

thanks,
Mike
