    Default Xtra Spam

    Sigh, the spammers are at it again, luckily only one email as usual cause not many people email me.
    How many has everyone else had come through?

    Yup wife has had at least half a dozen so far today.

    I've just registered a domain name, gotmail.co.nz, and I'm going to offer it to anyone for free who wants to create another email address to try and move people away from xtra & yahoo!
    It will be hosted using Outlook.com.

    Get a few now and then into my junk mail but not huge amounts. There are two that persist in getting through to my inbox ... this is one of them chris@freebiefox.co.nz and I'll post the other one when it arrives

    CYaBro, isn't the damage already done with the wide redistribution of xtra-based email addresses? i.e. The spammers just re-use what they've already got?
    Either go where you're looking or look where you're going!

    part of the problem is Telecom & Yahoo arnt saying much at all about it : "investigating"
    We are all left to guess whats going on , as per usual. You would think Telecoms Network Status page would be more up to date than the web pages reporting on these issues......but no :-(


    Yahoo's issues just keep on coming
    a goodie
    "Some users visiting Yahoo.com are redirected to sites armed with code that exploits vulnerabilities in Java and installs a variety of different malware."

    "As Yahoo makes encryption standard for email, weak implementation seen"
    "While this is a great step, the company's HTTPS implementation appears to be inconsistent across servers and even technically insecure in some cases"

    Why?
    Idiots can do that all by themselves - just use gmail or whatever....but they don't care.
    wipe your paws.

    But they may want a .co.nz address.

    Anyone interested send me a PM, it's all configured and ready to go.
