Yesterday evening our spamtraps started receiving the email below in a mass mailing action. The email was immediately flagged as spam even before reaching our spamtraps. No wonder since it has no To:-field, it has a different Reply-to:- than the From:-field and it comes from a DSL line IP address.

If the user replies to the email, the return address is set to [email protected].


Nice try, but the email is just to generic to be actually taken seriously by anyone. I expect to see targeted emails in the next days (as we’ve already seen last year).

Of course, we advise to never respond to such emails. if you did, What to do if you’ve responded to a phishing scam.
