I am against banning attachments, as they can often be useful during
discussions. While google drive and other services can be used by many,
some of us here on this list including myself are barred by network
policies of using or connecting to such services, as they can be used to
leak confidential data. Therefore, this would leave me out of any
discussions involving attachments, as I likely would be blocked from
The true problem here was a member of the list forwarding one of their
spams to the list, which included the original email address. This is the
issue that we need to be more careful with. If someone continues to have
an issue with forwarding spam, consider removing that person from the
list, but please do not forbid attachments. For safety, I often remove
everything from the To and CC except for the list address, so I know the
message will not travel beyond the list.
I have been here for a bit over a year, and this is the first spam attack
that I have seen on the iist. I can always hope it will be the last.
I read email in text based pine, and would have to specifically download
the images to ever be subjected to them. However, based on the body, they
look like the same type of subscription spam that Craigslist used to have
before they shut down their personals section. The sender uses auto
replies and different email addresses for the reply to address in an
attempt to fake a 2 way conversation with a victim, trying to get them to
sign up for a verification site of which the spammer has an affiliate
This has not happened much since I have been here, and I think as
professionals that if we can be careful, it will not remain an issue.
