Re: [vox-tech] cron - not at a different time



It's not from the list.

I'm pretty sure it's someone on our list who got infected, though.  I,
too, received such trogen from lugod@livepenguin.com.  This trogen seems
to be shuffling various addresses together to come up with some clever
"From:" line that looks legit.

If any of you use Windows, has a bunch of LUGOD people's addresses in your
addressbook, and have someone from livepenguin.com in your addressbook,
you're the culprit.  Get a email trogen filter.

BTW, just 'cuz it's on the mailing archive doesn't necessarily mean it was
sent through the mailing list.  It just means the mailing archive received
the e-mail, and whatever method used to determine its legitness got
passed.
