raspberrypi.org Security Issue??

Tue Jun 12, 2018 7:39 pm

Hi,
In 2016 I bought hardware codecs for my rPi, today I received 13 emails purportedly from store@raspberrypi.org sent to my paypal email account containing my (correct) serial number. I'm worried that the site has been compromised and would be glad to hear about a system glitch instead, has this happened to anyone else?

I have not used my rPi for some months (not sure I should admit that here!) but I am certain I have not done anything to trigger these mails in terms of accessing the website.

Any advice would be helpful; I have sent a message on the main website page but I am not sure how to properly raise this concern.

Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
