Title: Now MtGox list used to send malware :P
Post by: PulsedMedia on June 20, 2011, 07:59:49 AM
"Dear Mt.Gox user,

Our database has been compromised, how you already know.

To protect your account in the future, please download  the Certificate (self-extracting archive) from Attachment and install it.

If you were using the same password on Mt.Gox and other places (email, mybitcoin.com, etc), you should change this password as soon as possible.

Please accept our apologies for the troubles caused, and be certain we will do everything we can to keep the funds entrusted with us as secure as possible.


Any unauthorized access done to any account you own (email, mtgox, etc) should be reported to the appropriate authorities in your country.



Thanks,
The Mt.Gox team"

You can make the from line say whatever you want. I can send you an email from christ@god.com, or bill.gates@microsoft.com. As long as I don't care about getting a reply back, I can put whatever I want in the from box. This does not indicate that mt gox is further compromised.

Exactly my point, but not everyone realizes that, even if they are technically adept they might not realize that :) Point is it's better crafted than the average.
