  1. I've got a special email address that I've created just to register with PayPal and never used anywhere else. This email address uses a randomized first part (before the @) so its impossible to predict or to automatically generate. This email address has received 4-5 emails from PayPal since 2013 when it was first registered, mainly about updating the account details. BUT Today it received a spam email, originating from the IP address (mail6.kayfun.vip) about some e-shop selling fake jewellery, directly addressed to my special email address. So what possible theories exist? 1) My Linode.com server has been compromised and the email addresses have been harvested. It runs a pure CentOS 7.3 server, no control panel, just apache, dovecot and postfix. 2) PayPal has been hacked 3) PayPal sells email addresses to spammers 4) My desktop computer has been compromised (runs Fedora Linux, with claws-mail as an email client) 5) Something else? or a combination of the above? Anyone else seen this before? I'd appreciate your suggestions. Thank you.
