Forums Database Leaked to Spammers?
When I registered on this site, I used a randomly generated unique alphanumeric e-mail address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org
). This address is ONLY used for BikeForums.
Today I received spam for "Nolo Business Formation Round-up" at said address. Was my e-mail address deliberately shared with these people? Or could they have gotten it from some kind of hackers or something?
I have hundreds of these random addresses, and I only got this spam at the one use for BikeForums.
For me this will be easy to rectify since I can easily change the address. But if other people registered with their main e-mail address, it will be harder to get away from.
I am changing my e-mail and password used on this site.
