UPDATE: Thanks to backscatter, I got aware of the following email today:


Dear rizal,

We are looking for employees working remotely.

My name is Carlos, I am the personnel manager of a large International company.
Most of the work you can do from home, that is, at a distance.
Salary is $2900-$5900.

Good day!

The Link under "Our Site" leads to some sort of malware website (untested).

Well it would be nice, if someone could inform him, that this sentence is a big misconception. My Email address was stolen from Kimsufi forum and is actively being misused to send SPAM in my name. This way of misusing email addresses (even though obvious) was new to me. It is a very primitive form of identity theft. The damage in my case is negligible, since I used that email exclusive for Kimsufi forum, I already changed it and is now used as SPAM trap. I am sure other people are not so lucky.

Thanks for the transparency. I already changed my old forum emails, so that I don't have to worry about the SPAM.

Hi everybody,

I am noticing SPAM since yesterday on my Kimsufi forum email and on my SoYouStart forum email. Since I use them exclusive, the breach could only have happened at OVH. Anyone has more news about OVH forums getting hacked?

Further, I needed to update my password here in this forum (Kimsufi). Is this related?
