Submission + - Paypal Accounts compromised? (overclockers.com.au)

cpaluc writes: I received an odd spam message today. It was odd because, unlike most spam, it included my real name. I searched the address that the message was inviting me to visit and within the first 10 results was a forum discussion involving other people who had received the same message, also with their own real names. It may be too early to draw any conclusions yet, but the common element appears to be everyone's Paypal accounts. If Paypal is indeed the source, then it has some serious explaining to do.
