Good morning,

Last night one of our unmoderated members seems to have been hacked and
sent two SPAM notes to the list. The chances that her computer experienced
a brute-force attack is minimal. The more likely chance is that she clicked
on an email from someone without thinking and allowed the hackers to easily
take control of her system.

We get a lot of notes from people we haven't heard from for a long time
during the Christmas season ... please be careful when opening files or
clicking on links.
