Journal nnet's Journal: Some loser

Some Windows loser tries to change my password. I get the following email from /.:

Your new password is xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.Your old password will still work until this password is used. Go to the URL below to log in:

-SNIP URL-

Make sure you then CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD!

If you have received this message without having requested it, it is because someone attempted to use your username or e-mail address. It was mostly likely an innocent mistake, and they are not getting your password, so you can safely disregard this message.

Thanks.

In case you get multiple emails you didn't request, the requester's IP was 24.150.173.55. Its user agent was "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)" (not that you should trust that value, but it might be interesting).

dig -x 24.150.173.55

Nice try, LOSER.
