of AWeber and recommend them highly to others.
It seems that their systems may have been compromised
You may remember the previous AWeber compromise
back in December 2009 when subscriber data was
accessed by spammers.
Here's the Warrior Thread from that time:
And here was AWeber's response back then:
How We’ve Addressed The Recent Data Compromise
Since that time, I've been hyper-paranoid about
giving out my e-mails to any lists I join - regardless
of what autoresponder service provider is used.
If I sign-up for a list, I always create a unique
e-mail address for the particular list that I only
use to subscribe to that list.
For example, if I join Joe Blogs newsletter, I'll
create a unique e-mail address of firstname.lastname@example.org
in my cpanel and then subscribe with that.
Well, this morning, I've been inundated with spam
to e-mail addresses that I have only used to join
lists managed by AWeber or AWeber Private Labels.
Some of these e-mail addresses were only created
in the past month and have only been used with
AWeber or AWeber Private Label managed lists.
Here's the typical subject lines of the spam:
Your Federal Tax Payment ID 0103574805 is rejected. Urgent Report.
We Decline Your Federal Tax Payment ID: 0103761189.
Your Federal Tax Payment has been rejetced in system.
And the supposed sender e-mails end in @eftps.gov
Again, these are only being received to e-mail
addresses uniquely created and housed within
AWeber and AWeber Private Label servers.
Anyone else experiencing this too?
P.S. My sites are well protected and I use passwords
with at least 14 characters generated by RoboForm
so I don't think it's my systems.
The reason I think it's AWeber is because only the
unique e-mail addresses created specifically for the
AWeber managed lists are receiving spam.
I'm open to being wrong which is why I'm asking the
question if AWeber have been compromised again.
Dedicated to your success,
