It was recently brought to my attention that the Yahoo account of one of our members was compromised by a spammer.
This resulted in SPAM emails being sent to the entire mailing list.
Mailing lists by their nature are extremely popular with spammers because of the mass emailing potential.
It appears that there is a hacker breaking into Yahoo and possibly Gmail accounts and using them to spam. We advise people to make sure they are using secure passwords and to avoid pirate and porno websites because this seems to be where the hackers have been installing their spyware that compromises passwords.
Another recommendation is to unsubscribe from unused Yahoo mailing lists. This will prevent you from sending or receiving SPAM and remove your account from being a potential SPAMMER Zombie if the spammers have compromised yahoo groups accounts. This does not affect your forum account so sit back and enjoy the discussion about water rockets.
