I only say this because I started getting fake/spam/phishing emails to the email I use across the board for Vera/Ezlo products and websites (ie, this forum). It’s a very unique email (so it would be pretty odd for a bot to randomly generate it on its own) and no one else has it. So if I am starting to get fake/phishing emails to it, that means someone was able to get their hands on the information somewhere and that usually means some form of a breach of information (FYI).
Please send me a private message containing the full body of the email, including the headers.
I want to check if any of our MX servers were used.
Also, must note that your email is so guessable and not random. Random would be r4nd0M+v3ra+fan(at) domain.
I can share a list with what the script kiddies have been trying on our MX servers for the last week, for example.
Most of de identified addresses are found by bots.
Just as a follow up: one of our mx servers had been tried (login to be used as spam) for at least 11548 combinations of users and domains, starting March 10. On another server I have 20029, for only the last 2 days. These guys are inventive and use word dictionaries.
Hey Alecs. Apologies. It’s been a busy day. None of your MX servers were included as only mail.yahoo.com, yahoo.com, or sg3.yahoo.com were included within the headers. It was one of the first things I checked when I got the email (ie, sonic311-2.consmr.mail.sg3.yahoo.com). So the bot is sending via Yahoo via a database of information it has.
Please do complain to yahoo. I can’t find anything on that email, and I also can not find anything on a email that I have (something+filter@domain), which started receiving spam late 2020.
On the other hand, I found some of our emails (@mios) in a very old breach, but the list does not originate in our data, as most of the internal emails are missing.
Yahoo shall be reached out to
