Woke up to many emails today with the subject line…
Confirmation of Order Number (and then a random number)
The earliest one I have been sent was at 7:39 UK time. They were still coming in as I write this post.
Several are to addresses that have just been “guessed”. One is to a leaked address by a car rental company. One is to an address leaked by Adobe, one is to an address scraped from a text file in an open directory on the internet. One was to an address leaked by logmein.
