I would like to share with you some of the articles that helped me understand the how to combat the joe job and avoid another one in the future.

2BalanceU attacked by Email “Joe Job”

Quite frankly until this morning, I did not know what to call the act of falsely using a third party’s email domain for spamming (junk mail) purposes. Well apparently 2BalanceU has been victim of a joe-job and now we have to clean up the mess. This is very disconcerting because our credibility lies in the quality of our communications. I do apologise if there is anyone that we know that has received any of this spam (although it seems to have been sent out rather randomly, be obnoxious but not harmful and they do not have access to our mailing lists or data).

We are attending to it in the most expedient way possible and hope to have it fixed shortly with additional safety measures installed again further attacks.

Flattr this!
