Re: List-based spam: [IT Network & Security Professional Announcement (fwd)]

It seems as though a vendor may be out there selling a list of "Security
Professionals" who want to receive security related information from
third parties -- when in actuality it is a harvested list.

My company fell into the trap of receiving a list of these so-called
opt-in people which managed to tick a bunch of people off.

We made the decision to stop that practice for our free security
intelligence report and just let it grow organically since you just
cannot trust the lists anymore.

I'm curious about where 'Janet Clardy' from 'ESC Inc' has been harvesting
addresses from.  Has anybody else on this list gotten their spam? I'm
certain that I didn't sign up for this cruft.

Thus far I've received multiple copies via addresses that are only
subscribed to security-related mailing lists. [it does make you wonder
about their professed understanding of security and privacy issues,
doesn't it...]
