LTspice E-mail Address List Hacked?

Started by Jim Thompson August 25, 2012
I don't know if the LTspice List has been hacked but I'm suddenly
barraged with spam, like ~100 E-mails per day... sent to an address I
use only for LTspice.  So I changed my address.  (Easy for me, I
maintain ~200 different E-mail addresses just to cope with such
situations :-)

(All junk sent from googlegroups... just what you'd expect :-)

I love to cook with wine.     Sometimes I even put it in the food.

None coming here. However, the Yahoo groups do appear to be a bit 'leakier' than, say, the octave group. 100+ a day! What a nuisance. Maybe it's the gov't trying to arouse public outcry so they will be 'asked' to police the 'net.:)

Actually I think it's someone who lurks on these newsgroups. Every time I really annoy someone here I get a rash of spam. But, with multiple E-mail addresses (I have ~200 active), it's trivial to kill it. ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson, CTO | mens | | Analog Innovations, Inc. | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | Phoenix, Arizona 85048 Skype: Contacts Only | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | I love to cook with wine.

I had _zero_ noise level, because I used that address only for LTspice, then boom... the barrage hit... mostly in Chinese characters. So I changed the address and I'm back to zero noise. ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson, CTO | mens | | Analog Innovations, Inc. | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | Phoenix, Arizona 85048 Skype: Contacts Only | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | I love to cook with wine.
