The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 18.0343 Friday, 18 May 2007
Date: Friday, May 18, 2007
Subject: When sorrows come . . . SHAKSPER and SPAMMERs
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.

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