Did you set up your moodle with Fantastico? If so, that is the reason your dataroot directory is not safe. It is in a folder which is open to the www. Though this would not be the cause of your increased spam it is an issue you might like to look at. You can check the setup guide on the front page of this course for ways to set up moodle without fantastico in a more secure manner.
