Not long ago, I registered here, I didn't use my email for anything else. So, after a while, Bitcointalk got attacked and some users info were stolen -emails, usernames, etc..-. Soon after that, Bitcointalk sent users a message telling them to change their security info just in case.
After a short time from the attack, I started receiving spam emails trying to fool me into downloading an attachment (It was sure because of the Bitcointalk attack, because I only use my email for Bitcointalk), once I do that -download the attachment-, all my info will be in the hackers' hands. One of the very first emails were the ones pretending to be from e-fax websites. I ignored everything and they kept trying. Then they were inactive for a while and stopped sending emails.

Today, the hackers came back with this new email that doesn't go into your spam box. Here it is:

Thanks for the info tho but i think it would be better to change your email since you are using it only for bitcointalk.org, just create another email and replace it by the leaked one (if not done yet) then forget about the old email.
