I received an email this morning in response to my responses to last summer's MAC papers. The email I received¬†consisted of a generic greeting and two very suspicious links. The node address for the email is to what appears to be an open email service using a .us domain extension (stpl.us
), which in theory is a United States organization but in this case appears to be a means to provide a U.S. alias for a correspondent.¬†
The domain name in question is used by the¬†St. Tammany Parish Library for email. It's possible that you're seeing signs of one of their employee accounts being compromised, or it's possible that the email address was spoofed/forged.
In the hope that this information is useful,
