Junk Mail from Yahoo


WA0ITP
 

I'm getting 5 to 10 emails a day from unknown people, including some that appear to be from a Yahoo itself. So I suspect that Yahoo has been compromised again.

Anyone else receiving some of this junk?

Terry and All:

By default when someone joins our list their posts are moderated by default. Usually, the first time they send a legit looking on topic message they are un-moderated.

In the past month there have been quite a few bogus looking messages that we have deleted. The one earlier today was from an address used by a member that's been with us for a few years. I had sent several messages warning the user that his address was compromised. I got no reply. Out of options, I deleted him from the mail list this afternoon.

Thanks Tim,

Does it help us if we block the sender on our machines?  Or can they change addresses faster than we can keep up?

That particular address should not be able send an email to the 4SQRP list again. However, if whatever miscreant is doing it has your email address it is still possible for you to get mail from that addressed.

I don't know the inner workings of Yahoo email. I do know from managing this and other mailing lists over the years that it seems like yahoo.com and arrl.org addresses get into the bad guys hands more so than others.

It's the world we live in. I saw an article a while back where the manager of one Internet service estimated that as much as 80% of the email traffic that came through their system was spam / unsolicited. This is based on what their own mechanisms were able to filter out.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Unfortunately the spammers change addresses every e-mail they send.  Lately, I have been getting “Open Immediately.  Walmart-Amazon-Bestbuy-you-name-it has a surprise for you. $50 gift certificate”  I’m sure it’s ransomware or something like that.  I’m just quick on the SPAM button and NEVER open anything suspicious, even if I know the sender.

Hello All,

Very good advice Chas NK8O.  Don’t open anything even if you know the person.  eMali is a total mess right now.  I spend most of my computer time messing with eMail rather than enjoying the iNet.  It isn’t unusual for me to open my eMail program to find +/- 100 emails.  I thought it would let up after the election but I think it might have even gotten worse???
