Exactly. The "other site" seems to have information it shouldn't have, which makes me think this is some sort of mistake. Or a serious breach.gkreidl wrote:I just received such a message, matching a real new posting of today. So it's not sorted out. The phishing site is still active (site might have been hacked).
And how did the sender ("haggis.mythic-beasts.com") get my email address? And how did he know that I have subscribed to that special topic?
If you follow the link you are asked for user name and password of your Raspberry Pi forum account. That's phishing in my view.RobHenry wrote:As pointed out above, they're not phishing emails - they come to genuine thread subscribers as a result of thread updates.

Why is there no explanation from the foundation?
OK, but they may have another evil client. If they are the foundation's web provider it should be easy to contact them and tell them about it. They should really be interested in not loosing a client like the foundation.jamesh wrote:I'll flag it up - they may not know its happening again.
Mythic Beasts are the Foundations web provider, so they are the good guys.
