deviantchild Posted September 18, 2008 Share Posted September 18, 2008 recently i've had two mails that i've reported through spamcop that look semi legit each has had the subject "Your Recent Stay at The Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road Agra" and each has addressed me by my surname, prefixed with "Mr." in the message body there appears to be no obfuscation, and all reports ( for the most recent of the two) went to abuseATnetmagicsolutionsDOTcom and abuseATnetmagiciansDOTcom a quick google for "net magic solutions" returns results for an indian company - something to do with mail security solutions, so they say although the hotmail address that these emails were sent to is comprised of my forename and surname joined (butted up against each other), my account settings do not state my gender or the two names individually, simply initials sure, a human could discern the two names and create the division in order to address me by my surname, but does this now mean there are more advanced methods of creating spam now? or does this mean that somebody with my address had their system compromised? or hotmail itself got hacked? - although that still doesn't explain how the mail was created from my ambiguous account details i reported both anyway, since i haven't subscribed to anything, given out my details or stayed in said hotel - although i have been to agra a long time ago when i was travelling, but that was a couple of years before i was even on the web Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
