Phishing on the dev list! (was: Paypal Needs Your Feedback)

From: Carsten Koch <Carsten.Koch_at_icem.com>

In case somebody did not notice: This is a Phishing mail
trying to get at your paypal account data.
Note that it tries to make you think that the link included
points to www.paypal.com, while in fact it points to
id-pp145712829.info.

How did that get through to the dev mailing list?
