I recently received phishing emails addressed to 'allakhazam@*******'. Registering for this site is the only place I have ever used that email address. This means that your email database is the only place that phishers could have found this email address.

Just thought you should know.

grist.

There's a thread on this exact subject barely down the page in which it is revealed, in fact, that this does not necessarily point to a leak on Allakhazam's part.

I've edited the OP to remove the users's email address so it's not scrapped (if it wasn't already) for use by phishers.

Locking the thread as there is already one about the same issue on the 1st page.
