I don't think that this list accepts email from non-subscribers. However, it is entirely possible that e-mail addresses have been harvested from archived messages. The archive at http://www.softwolves.pp.se/misc/arkiv/cbm-hackers/ obscures the email addresses a little, but I guess that the bad guys can program simple search&replace patterns. > Can anyone confirm my theory that we're under spam attack? If by "we" you mean Internet users, I can confirm that. I remember getting my first spam around 1993 or 1994. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
