I do a full scan once per week and never get a hit. Good right? Well not
so much. Lately I have been getting spam that has by-passed my filters
because the names (not email addresses) match exactly names on my email
There have been only 9 names but some of the names are unique enough
that a red flag has gone up.
Any suggestions as to how this has happened, other than a huge
coincidence? (BTW I don't believe in coincidence).
Re: Coincidence or not? Spammers getting through using same first and last name on my email list
I bet one of your friends computers has been compromised. Or by
chance do anyone you know send you forwarded emails? Either situation
could lead to email harvesting. I'd bet on those two possibilities
before considering your computer had been compromised.
