We received several e-mails today from folks who had received spam claiming that a database containing customer info at Blue Security had been compromised.  The folks there claim that this is not the case and that it is a scare campaign and the spammer is using lists already at their disposal.  There official statement can be found here.

Update:  It appears that bluesecurity.com has been under a DoS and/or DNS hijacking attack since this story was posted.
