Same issue here, I normally get about one spam a month, but got seven last night!


Its as though the spam filter is off at Vodafone.




I noticed that the spams I am getting aren't only addressed to me, they are to multiple


ihug users.  Someone hasn't gotten your ihug database has it Vodafone?


same here. no spam for years with vodafone now for last week its daily.

HTPC Intel Pentium G3258 cpu, Gigabyte H97n-wifi motherboard, , 8GB DDR3 ram, onboard  graphics. Hauppuage HVR 5500 tuner,  Silverstone LC16M case, Windows 10 pro 64 bit using Nextpvr and Kodi

I started getting spam after clicking cleverloop security competition link from freitasm.


I am totally not saying it was GZ link, just found it coincidental. I love this site

I've always found spam a bit of a cat and mouse affair. Spammers figure out a way of beating spam traps and levels increase; spam trappers then update their algorithms and it dies down again. Until the next variation.


A few years back there was a bunch of spam (particularly to corporate email addresses) that contained haikus and other poetry/quotes. I actually enjoyed that for a day or so.

I've been getting lots of spam lately on my I hug email, also getting "not delivered after 24 hours" messages which I have never seen before.

Just looked at my Spam box - a total of 940 emails with "Document2" attached among other malware.


I really should get around to firing up a virtual machine and executing some of these for science...

20 spam emails this morning.


Cmon Vodafone can we have an update on this?  Why is this happening to so many ihug users?


Is your spam filter still on?

Another 20 or so again this morning, come on Vodafone, this is getting ridiculous!   An update on what happened and why, and a bit more than "we are working on it" would be appreciated. Is there even anything on the Vodafone website about this so that people know they didn't click on something dodgy, or perhaps advise people not to open attachments etc ... what to do if the accidentally open one? Come on .. is a bit of common sense too much to ask?
