Didnt' see this posted, wanted to let you know of it, this is from my hosting service. Thank goodness I don't use this crap.
EFFECTIVE 09/09/2002 ALL FORMMAIL SCRIPTS FROM WORLDWIDEMART.COM OR MATT'S CGI ARCHIVE MUST BE REMOVED FROM YOUR SITE.
The FormMail scripts in your website are being abused by spammers, thus your website is participating in sending SPAM of GREAT Numbers.

Yep, the spammers are quite fond of Matt's script! I see entries in my error log all the time:
When I see this, I know some spammer is out looking for their next victim! I renamed the script, and used the updated version which has additional checks to prevent spamming.
So far, I haven't had any problems. When the server returns the "file not found" error, the spammers go away in search of another "host".
Spammers = vampires.
