I received an e-mail with a subject of "- - Welcome to Greenwise Debt Relief RFK" and was about to delete it as junk spam... and then I saw the body of the message:
This email has been sent from https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php You have received this email because this email address was used during registration for our forums.

(Not going to post the entire link, as it is likely malicious)
The user agent reported in the headers is "Lucee Mail" which is not the same one used (and I just verified by registering, heh) by this forums.
So why is the body of somebody's BleepingComputer forums verification message embedded in a spam e-mail? Is it a secondary effect from somebody's PC being infected when they tried to sing into these forums, or somebody exploiting this forum's software?
