    Someone is abusing your email list again, this time to push web cam girls. I just recieved the email today. So either you have a hole in your security or an inside person has leaked your members list.

    Neither of those.

    Email used a spoofed header, no security breach at all.

    The Email list was compromised during this incident...

    AO Attack

    The security issue has now been corrected by the Administrators, but there is nothing that can prevent Spammers from using the compromised list...

    Aww... I didn't get the e-mails, I guess maybe its because I changed my e-mail address recently.

    I haven't received any of those emails, perhaps going through the compromise list of members and letting them know so they can change their email addresses would be a nice counter measure those malicious emails.

    That would mean everyone who was signed up at the time the email list was comprimised.

    Its easier to let everyone know about which emails coming from Anime Online are real, and how to spot fake ones.
