Dear user bdfoy@cpan.org

[ #23253 ]

The solution to too much email is more mail.

Dear user bdfoy@cpan.org,
 
We have detected that your account was used to send a huge amount of
unsolicited commercial e-mail during this week.
Most likely your computer was compromised and now runs a hidden proxy
server.
 
Please follow the instruction in the attached file in order to keep your
computer safe.
 
Have a nice day,
cpan.org user support team.

  • For anyone who missed the Start of Joke / End of Joke tags ... this is the style of forged email of a current eMail trojan-worm floating around. IIRC, it's one of the several templates for MyDoom [symantec.com].

    • I figured it was something like that, but I normally don't see them. I've been getting one about every five minutes today.
      • Oh, I assumed you recognized it for what it was and were posting it for the pure irony.

        You missed several really weird, really pernicious worm/trojans during your "camping trip".

        Amazing what some of my co-workers will click on in their in-basket ...

        cheers,

        Bill

    • I love the ones I get from "the org.uk team". org.uk only contains third-level domains. They're almost as good as the ones I get from "the cantrell.org.uk administrators". So that would be from me then? I don't think so!
