SAS Phishing anyone?

Recommended Posts

In the last few days I have received two emails with fake claiming to eminate

from "forums-at-superanitspyware-dot-com".

Anyone else experiencing similar?

Each was in or contained Russian language.

Sorry, had to leave the email header out.

Yahh - I figured that - gives me question to the viability of the forum's database security.

In the Security Forum world I am accustomed to, it is a critical breach that must be reported to all users.

With all due respect, where did I say it was a PM? It clearly states I received an *email*,

and FWIW it is the email I used to subscribe here.

JMHO but it strongly suggests that SAS forum user database has been compromised.

[EDIT -14, Dec, 2011, 16:07]

I take responsibility for having far too many email notifications on my profile.

Opens things up to far too many variables. Please accept my apoligies if you feel I was out of line.

[END EDIT]
