Subject: 	When sorrows come . . . SHAKSPER and SPAMMERs

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

The SHAKSPER server has been hijacked yet again.

Neither Eric Luhrs, technical advisor, or I can figure out how, but we 
have been compromised and my domain shaksper.net is being 'blacklisted" 
all over the Internet with hundreds of members of the list being 
automatically dropped by their ISPs.

Another eleven SPAMs have somehow gotten through our security and been 
distributed with the listserv software from my LINUX server. In addition, 
eight SHAKSPER messages SHK 18.0334 to SHK 18.042 have disappeared from 
the SHAKSPER logs mysteriously.

Until we can figure this out I am going to turn off listserv and possibly 
sendmail and my server.

Sadly,
Hardy M. Cook
Editor

PS: And this trouble coming as my grades for the term are due, an 
unfortunate conclusion to an exceedingly difficult semester for me.
