Trying to investigate a reported spam email that contained multiple WS members in the address and included a link to a malicious site.

Anyone else get it?

I'll check my spam filters. What was the 'From' address?

Nope, but would you forward it to me with the long header intact, please?

I didn't actually receive it. I got a note from another WSer who had received it. Waiting to hear back about the sender name and heading info.

I didn't want to get the email forwarded, but the sender was volcomsk8er1987@yahoo.co.uk

Several WSers were listed in the addresses, including G.

I guess my spam filters caught it. So, the only thing that connected this spam email to WS was that several of the "to" addresses were WSers? Sounds like a member simply got their address book hijacked by malware.

Happens all the time... to PCs. ;)
