If your domain contains a page with a contact form, our scanner will test it. This can be prevented in two different ways.
1. Disallowing the scanner from testing the page where the contact form is located
To prevent our scanner from accessing your contact form, you can use our feature that lets you allow and disallow paths. Read how to do this here.
2. Blocking Detectify’s IP address
The alternative to disallowing paths is to block our IP address from testing your contact form. This is more advanced than using paths, but it may allow for a more accurate test than just blocking the scanner from the whole path.
Our IP addresses can be found here.
Please note that if our scanner can spam your contact form, then anyone else could do the same and in that sense, it could be considered a vulnerability.
