FORGED EMAIL POSTED TO NANOG

  • From: Reid B. Fishler

Hi all-
	Someone is having fun tonight, getting 1010WINS, a local radio stations web site to send mail
as me to nanog:

Received: from mail.cbsig.net (mail32.nyc01.cbsig.net [63.240.57.32])
        by segue.merit.edu (Postfix) with SMTP id 441835DD8F
        for <nanog@merit.edu>; Thu, 25 Oct 2001 23:16:14 -0400 (EDT)
Received: (qmail 7985 invoked from network); 26 Oct 2001 03:16:13 -0000
Received: from web145.nyc01.cbsig.net (63.240.56.145)
  by mail02.cbsig.net with SMTP; 26 Oct 2001 03:16:13 -0000

1010WINS is a CBS owned station, and as you can see this email came from cbsig.net, which is NOT me.
Can the mailing list program be fooled by sending mail from a web program like this? Perhaps this should
be looked at. Anyhow, I just wanted to mention I did NOT send this email.
