Yesterday, I received two messages (sent about 1/2 hour apart) from email@example.com stating that "a user would like to be able to access the following domain..."
They are both requesting access to the same site, but the Email address given in the User information section of the messages is slightly different - one includes a dot (.) between what appears to be a first and last name; the other does not.
I do not know who this person might be.
The Network Details in the User information refer to my home network.
Could this be related to somebody hacking a msg from firstname.lastname@example.org? I would guess not, since the requests do seem to be legitimate.
Since I have a dynamic IP address assigned to my home, could this be a problem with messages being sent to the wrong place? Could it be that somebody else was assigned an IP address which I just recently was using?
Is this something I should be concerned about?
I live in a rural situation where it is unlikely that somebody was using my wireless connection - which does use an encryption key (not a simple one). I did, just now, change the admin password on my wireless router. It DID have one, but it wasn't very complex (just letters and numbers).
Also, the domain being requested IS actually blocked on my network.
