walgreens sells email database received skype phishing — thanks to disposable email address easy to stop spam flow in more likely event walgreens phishing email from stolen list

Filed under: Disposable Email Address — Tags: , , — Seth Wisely @ 04:11

thanks walgreens for the coupons and complimentary phishing attempts…. if not stolen then all confidence LOST in your online pharmacy services… fortunately I do not believe in using such “convenient” tools.. imagine the fun

example phishing email sent to DEA exclusively provided to walgreens

Walgreens took great care to guard their privacy feedback email:

Yahoo webmail is less than useful.  It will no longer allow me to reply as-from the AddressGuard address to which email is sent.  (pick Address Guard address in “from” drop down in compose reply pane).  Attempt to send, correctly solve feckless captcha

and then this additional nonsense….

The message you composed has not been sent. Such message blocks are usually caused by sending a message whose content has triggered our spam filters, or by sending to too many recipients at a given time. We encourage you to carefully review the recipient list and contents (including URLs therein) of your message before attempting to resend it. 

If you think that you received this message in error, or are receiving it persistently, please read this FAQ for more information and to request Customer Care assistance.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


I don’t want an apology.  I want to be able to send as from the yahoo disposable email address I created….  as I have been able to do since the addition of AddressGuard, and before that with other email addresses or free disposable email address services like or

circumventing requires picking primary yahoo address in From drop down.  yeah, that’s not going to happen — yahoo has defeated the entire value of yahoo AddressGuard.  (yahoo inflicts similar hassle when composing new email to friends, family, or cowordkers using from-as AddressGuard or from-as another Disposable Email Address).  no send joy

Why prompt for “from” information in new disposable email address creation pane?

with confidently signup to receive that one coupon you want without offering up your account to be raped.  Get what you want.. when the spam started simply deleted the AddressGuard overlay (forwarding) address.

Sure, it’s NOWHERE near as awesome as TMDA… but it was once a flawless integration of DEA with email provider.  Gmail’s (not new) plus addressing or dot placement is a joke by comparison.

“You can create disposable addresses to use whenever you don’t want to share your real Yahoo! Mail address,” or so yahoo claims

captcha within the webmail interface will not significantly reduce spam.. duh?  hello, yahoo?  Please stop tormenting the innocent like unconstitutional anti-self-defense fascist laws

RequestPolicy reveals new MedlinePlus cross site request from

Filed under: fascist fiat — Tags: , , — Seth Wisely @ 14:23 seems to be the latest propagandist tool by greatleader’s socialism administration.

A mere two days ago MedlinePlus,, had no such integration.  More president’s fascist fiat?

Take a moment to share with Health and Human services, the same great people partly responsible for promoting teen fornication, via survey how little you value this infliction.

RequestPolicy is a security enhancing extension for firefox.

That’s no longer the American way.  Unquestioning obedience, compliance, and ingenuity seppuku is the new world order.  Silence!  iJail you!

it should be a nightmare to obtain physical location from IP address without subpoena

Why are ISPs being complicit with the eerie geoIP location move to high granularity?

They ought offer an option to opt-out of geoIP location DHCP!  Obviously this is not an encouragement to pirate media — drm accomplishes that all on its own.   Commision of real crimes can still be found through subpoena.

police logging mobile phone IMEI?

Filed under: wantonly bizarre — Tags: — Seth Wisely @ 14:51

NYPD tracking phone owners for fingerprint style database

Wow cannot wait until traffic stops require fingerprinting and blood letting

Why stop at using an IMEI database “solving” committed crimes?  Real time mobile phone logging without warrant!  It would be much easier to issue speeding tickets by mail.

Google would love to get their hands on yet another aspect of your-yourself: they already have a dataminer’s paradise through all the “free” services they offer.  Knowing all  your contacts and everything you communicate by email, IM, and phone is a good start, but knowing where you are while you’re doing it (even when you don’t have an android) would be so much tastier. [n]Obama could then buy the data or wend the technology to the now illegal tracking of citizens across government department/domains.
