Re: no proof
@AC - Very wrong.
I get plenty of other spam, but all of these have followed a pattern.
They are *all* addressed to a unique address only used for PlusNet (e.g. mynamemangled.pn@mydomain etc).
They *all* have a subject that starts with "(mynamemangled.pn@mydomain)"
They are *all* are sent from the same "spammer"*.
They *all* have this footer...
"To stop all future communications from this sender, please go [link here]
You may also write to us at 237 S Delsea Drive #302 Vineland, NJ 08360"
Not just mine, but everyone else too.
* - I say spammer, but unlike random garbage spam looking for active mailboxes, this to me this looks like PlusNet/BT have released addresses to a third party for marketing use, which is in breach of their policy where they say they will *never* do this without permission.
I have blocked the address in question and changed my PlusNet registered address to something else unique. Guess what? These mails have stopped.
If this was random attacks guessing addresses, I'd have tonnes going to random addresses testing them. I don't.
So yes, it's entirely an issue with PlusNet and/or BT. Remembering that BT have leaked addresses recently, and PN is owned by BT.
