I have to say -- in all my years of using email, this is the first time I've seen this specific ploy against a listserv. Either someone on this list just got smacked with a virus that scraped their inbox for possible targets, or something/someone is looking
at online archives to gather addresses and other info to appear more legitimate.
The email was delivered directly to my email address -- **NOT** through the CRTech listserv.
My spam filter caught and flagged it, but it's interesting to me that the virus/sender used a name & .sig of "CRTech" with a return email address of something related to radio. (I can't tell if the email is from a valid CRTech listserv member or not --
I don't recognize "voxrox" as anyone who's posted before, and I don't know the other recipients either.) The headers reveal that the email originated in France.
The link (removed for obvious reasons) goes to some offshore site - no doubt it hosts either a phishing attack or just pure malware/ransomware.
This is just another great example why you need to be careful and examine each email for links and content that may look legitimate upon a cursory glance.
To paraphrase the tag line some others use here on the list:
