    Default Spam and OR

    I'm wondering if anybody received a lot of spam over the last 4 days.
    I gotten over 180 junk mails pretty much from different emails but
    the subjects seem to repeat over and over.

    OR is one of the few if any places that have my email.
    I'm not saying OR is selling emails, I'm wondering if somebody hacked it.

    The this happned to anybody else???

    Some sample subjects below.

    Is this commercial spam, or an email worm (i.e. is there an attachment on a nonsense email?) There is a new email worm Sober.P I think, that is actually sending out 25% of all email in the world the last week. Someone got infected, and it harvested your email from their address book. Could have been a friend, a colleague or Aunt Clara. The favorite subject line for the first half of last week was "good day!"
