I have a Yahoo! account that I hardly ever use anymore. I check it once every 6 months or so for email, but it remains unused otherwise. I do have my IM client Adium set to log into the account , but I don't ever use it for chatting. I also don't have the account generally associated with any of my other accounts, and it doesn't even have my real name on it.
Tonight I logged into yahoo-mail and checked the mailbox for said account. Delightfully I found several emails from Jayde.com to my unused yahoo mailbox, but with information about this blog.
Somehow I received mail to my unused yahoo account mentioning this blog.
I've never linked the two email addresses, I don't ever log into the yahoo email address, and haven't sent/received mail from it in forever.
The messages were dated back in March...
So, now I'm wondering how these two data items got linked.
- Advertising site that is buying data and/or access logs and linking disparate things together?
- Weird CSRF or some-such?
