Yesterday I received s*bscr*be, l*sts, and h*lp commands, four sets for each
of my two lists (24 commands in all) for this address: buster @
[.ua is in the ukraine, yes?]
Everything bounced back user unknown, and given there were so many of them,
I suspected a forge attack (which my server had been escaping for a very
long time, but unfortunately has started happening recently).
Today, I received one set each (s*b, l*sts, h*lp) for the two lists for
this address: forever @
My lists are set full moderated so I ignored them.
None of the other lists on my server was hit, so I suspect they used the
PAML as their source document.
None of the fidonet nodes shows up in my logs.
