The predominant source seems to be bounces; rejection mails
coming _back_ to this mailing list, because some spambot(s)
used debian-edu as its sender/reply-to address.
That could have happened if some mail to this list recently
was CC-ed to something/someone owned (or should I say p0wned)
by a spammer. It follows the "friend of the friend" logic,
spreading between recipients who are apparently already
known to each other.
Anyhow, is the listadmin working on this? I'm seriously
considering unsubscribing to from this list due to this
latest bout of spam bounces on it...
