Just got this:

If you want to be on the safe side there is no other way.

The Gox email list ist out to the public and these addresses are valuable targets for any thief.

They only need to hack into your PC and have a good chance to find a nice wallet.dat and get your bitcoins.

Thus such attacks will never end.

Try to detach every used service from your old email, delete it and get a new one. The earlier the better.

Are you worried that in some point in the future you'll have a lapses of judgement and accidentially:
1. download a rar from the internet
2. uncompress it
3. install the .exe or whatever

In the hope of being secure?

Huh

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

I've never fallen for one of those, but every time I catch myself just before clicking.

I guess I could label it all spam and just miss the genuine Gox emails.
