Over the last couple of days all of the web sites I look after have been subject to a concerted spam attack. The comments on the Lesley Riddoch web and blog sites clogged up with invitations to buy lots of different branded goods. Most of these invitations were easily spotted; bad English syntax and even strange character sets. This morning, my personal email was stuffed with 'Postmaster Delivery Failure - Notification'. It seems sometime last night I 'sent out ' emails with a variety of links; all of them spurious. As a matter of principle and practice, I would never send anyone a link with admonishments to buy products or services.
I am working thorough the security procedures to establish whether my email has been hacked and I am scanning all my computers for viruses. Apologies for any inconvenience.
