Subject:Poker Players Alliance address leaked to spammers
Time:10:12 pm
I give every organization that I'm involved with a unique, tagged address. For example, if I'm doing business with Amazon, I might give them amafoo123@MYDOMAIN. This lets me track with absolute certainty where my email address is being leaked.

Today I received spam sent to my PPA email address. There's a slightly-munged copy of the message at the end.

At this point, the PPA should be considered either evil or insecure.

Same here. 3 times from a golden Gate casino. However, it's a gmail account and i have no idea how much they filter upfront through blacklisting etc.

Given what you know, what %-chance do you assign to it being a dumb mistake vs. it being that they sold their list?

Hrmm, off the top of my head, 80% rogue employee, 10% corporate decision, 10% hacker.

Not a dumb mistake, but rather a careless employee without much of an idea how to protect client data.

That sux. Did you send an email to the PPA about this? I'd be curious as to their response.

I'll let everyone know what (if anything) they have to say.
