Most probably there is something wrong with my security settings.
What could be causing that? Is there a way for me to fix it?
It's been a while since I've used Pidgin, but doesn't it have an option somewhere which is called something like "only allow these people to contact me" (or similar)? That should work, unless the spam is actually coming from your contact's accounts, in which case you might need to use something like Bot Sentry
. But like I said, it's been a while.
