Hpc.co.uk Selling Email Addresses?

Recommended Posts

For every internet site I use, I register with a unique email eg. housepriceecrash@mydomain.com.

I just received the following email to my housepricecrash registered email address:

From: "Walter Massey" <mark-r@boltfolio.com>

To: housepricecrash <housepricecrash@mydomain.com>

Subject: wacke message from Walter Massey

Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2006 22:12:19 +0000 (EDT)

I received exactly the same message using the unique email address I registered for HPC this morning and have PM'ed the email with the headers to WebMaster.

I hope they are not selling them but I'm wondering if HPC was compromised in the recent attack and email addresses where harvested? Even so I'm not happy.

We need answers! Is this how Fubra fund themselves? :o

Of course not, don't be a muppet. If Fubra were to sell the email

addresses do you not think they would sell them to organisations

a lot more tightly targetted than those selling sham degrees since

that's where the better return lies?

I too received two pieces of spam to my `hpc' email address this morning.

Again, it has never been used outside of hpc. My guess is the recent

security breach of the forums resulted in many email addresses being

harvested for spam.
