Thread: Compromised?

    I recently signed up with a hosting company and started setting up an account on the server (uses ensim). I setup the email for the [email protected] to be forwarded to an email account on my ISP. As a test, I sent an email to [email protected] with the text "Does this work?". The email forwarded correctly.

    A couple of days later I got a spam-type email on my ISP account with the subject line "RE:Yes it works-U see this right-". The email had several destination addresses in the header, but mine was the only one that appears to be legit.

    Could be a big coincidence, but I am not a big believer in coincidence. The text fits too well and I never get spam on that ISP account.

    What's up - server hacked, someone inside screwing around?

    For what it's worth, here is the message text (edited my address). Any clues?

    It's hard to tell if it's just an email. I suggest you contact your web host about it and inform them on the situation.
