Bulletin RAC 2009-036E - RAC target of phishing attempt

Several messages have been received from users of the @rac.ca e-mail alias system who have received e-mails purporting to be from RAC claiming that maintenance was to be performed on the e-mail system and that certain information was requested to be sent to the sender of the message.

Please note that this message was not originated by anyone at RAC. We would not ask for such information as usernames and passwords in an e-mail. It can safely be ignored. E-mails relating to the @rac.ca e-mail alias system would come from alias-help@aliases.rac.ca or vptas@rac.ca or other identifiable RAC e-mail address.

Thanks to Earle Smith, VE6NM, who sent me the message with complete headers which made it possible to report this activity to the provider from which the messages originated as well as the provider of the e-mail address to which replies were to de sent.
