What have I done to deserve this? :confused: :(
Today I have been receiving spam from various senders that do not appear to have any connection with each other.
Some I know, others may be bird people that have added me to their address book.

Things like this
www.marcade-cadeau.com/ ......radera de ra

Not all the same www address as above though.

Why me????? [:(!]

I just had one with a link like that from someone on an xtra address, whom I emailed last year. Are yours xtra people by chance? I had another xtra-origin spam one last week sometime too.

Me too...
I'm hoping it's not related to the hacking attack last week....

We keep everything up to date but the @#%#$ hackers have nothing better to do than attack sites like ours.

Not connected via here Kate, most of mine are not LSBers, I know, hard to believe there are some people out here that aren't [}:)]

I've been spammed for the last day or two as well, ALL xtra accounts, of people I hardly ever heard from via email, mostly people I've only contacted once or twice. I thought it was probably xtra messed up, again. Except for the one from spoook, none of them are LSB folk.

Yes, I have just seen all the undeliverable one bouncing back to me, BUGGER !
Of course. not a sign of them being sent in my sent box. [:(!]

So how the heck did I get "infected"??????? I did not open any of the emails.

At least I get to update my address book.

Might have to follow through to Xtra, see what they can tell me.

They'll go to anyone; they're all from xtra/yahoo. It's not the people who hold the accounts who have the problem, its the xtra/yahoo servers.

Hell yes, change passwords! They've harvested yours if your account is being used. Whether or not it does anything, it's a good practice to do that regularly.
