I use COMODO Internet Security Pro 2012 for my PC so I think I am safe.
I do a full scan once per week and never get a hit. Good right? Well not
so much. Lately I have been getting spam that has by-passed my filters
because the names (not email addresses) match exactly names on my email
list.

There have been only 9 names but some of the names are unique enough
that a red flag has gone up.

Any suggestions as to how this has happened, other than a huge
coincidence? (BTW I don't believe in coincidence).
