Spam emails from Jane

Just got a spam email with the title" [video] Dead Simple Trick Brings Any Battery Back To Life" from the email address: Jane <[email protected]> At least I hope it was spam and not an approved site supporter.

Just a heads up, if you need more info or the full header I can provide.

Yup. me, too and another one a couple of hours later this afternoon from the same (supposed) source, entitled, " Ordinary Guy Retires After Winning The Lotto 7 Times". I haven't compared the detailed headers carefully but they seem to be from the same idiot.

I've received both of them. Perhaps this site's user list has been hacked.

Yup, I'm receiving spam email also and no I'm not subscribed to the newsletter:

from: Larry <[email protected]> via amazonses.com
reply-to: [email protected]
to: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX(REMOVED)
date: Wed, Sep 13, 2017 at 7:00 PM
subject: Ordinary Guy Retires After Winning The Lotto 7 Times
mailed-by: amazonses.com
signed-by: amazonses.com
security: Standard encryption (TLS)

There is a remove link at the bottom of the email, but I not going to click it because it might only serve to confirm an active email address.

Just got two more: The "battery"one was allegedly from Graybeard Outdoors (I haven't logged in there for so long I don't remember even joining up!) and the "Lottery" one from someone called "Luis"

Part of the header from the latter reads:
Received: from a11-55.smtp-out.amazonses.com (a11-55.smtp-out.amazonses.com. [54.240.11.55])
I looked up that IP address on What is My IP Address.com and it came up with this:
Details for 54.240.11.55
IP: 54.240.11.55
Decimal: 921701175
Hostname: a11-55.smtp-out.amazonses.com
ASN: 14618
ISP: Amazon.com
Organization: Amazon.com
Services: None detected
Type: Corporate
Assignment: Static IP
Blacklist:
Continent: North America
Country: United States us flag
State/Region: Washington
City: Seattle
Latitude: 47.5839 (47° 35′ 2.04″ N)
Longitude: -122.2995 (122° 17′ 58.20″ W)
Postal Code: 98144
"Jane's" IP address is nearly the same: 54.240.11.15 and also comes up as Amazon.com. Maybe this shoud be reported to Amazon?

Wanted to let you know that investigation is underway. Currently, best theory is a singular account being compromised, but it's to soon to say.

If anyone can still access the spam emails, can you please PM me? Will give you my email so you can forward them my way so we can dig deeper into them.

Thanks for the patience guys, and sorry for the headache

Kevin

Really appreciated for all the members and admins looking into this issue (I've been getting these different first name admin email fairly recently, like the past 5 days at the most). For those that are frustrated, take a breath and calm down. These kind of things happens quite often in the world we now lived in, really sucks but we just have to deal with it.

Hey guys.

Still in the learning phase, but some plugin on our end went haywire and started firing those off. Site security was not compromised.

Sorry for the headache and I'll pass along more info when I get it

My experience has been that most viruses get propagated by *managers* -- they'll click in *anything*.

I just got another 'David Unaipon..." message, this time supposedly from NC Angler, of which I am not a member (nor even heard of!). It traces to the same IP range as the others (Amazon). However, this one did get caught by Gmail's filters and was sent to my Spam folder so maybe these are now being successfully tagged.

I copied the headers from one of the earlier e-mails ("Jane"), mentioning that members on various outdoors/firearms forums had been receiiving them and sent it to "[email protected]" and got an automated message saying it's been forwarded to their Security Dept.

Probably more annoying than dangerous (unless maybe you click on any of the links, thus confirming your address) but it doesn't hurt to report it.

Interesting, though... e-mail addresses collected from who knows where and sent to people known or thought to be interested in firearms and outdoor sports. As PT Barnum (or perhaps his competitor) said, "There's a sucker born every minute." Keeps the spammers in business.
