David Andrews,

I am subscribed to a few of the local Missouri NFB email lists. We get monthly emails about or list subscriptions and how to change the subscriptions  if needed. These emails include the passwords in plaintext. I am honestly not sure who to send this to so I'm sending it to you and I will also be forwarding it to both of these lists below.
I am currently studying for a computer science degree with an emphasis in cyber security. This brakes so many rules of proper password management I am flabbergasted it has continued like this in 2018. i have included my monthly email for June with my own passwords obfuscated. although, you probably have access to my passwords  anyway... Please let me know if you have any questions or if i can provide anymore information.

email is below;

This is a reminder, sent out once a month, about your nfbnet.org <http://nfbnet.org/>
mailing list memberships.  It includes your subscription info and how
to use it to change it or unsubscribe from a list.

You can visit the URLs to change your membership status or
configuration, including unsubscribing, setting digest-style delivery
or disabling delivery altogether (e.g., for a vacation), and so on.

In addition to the URL interfaces, you can also use email to make such
changes.  For more info, send a message to the '-request' address of
the list (for example, nfbmo-request at nfbnet.org <mailto:nfbmo-request at nfbnet.org>) containing just the
word 'help' in the message body, and an email message will be sent to
you with instructions.

If you have questions, problems, comments, etc, send them to
nfbmo-owner at nfbnet.org <mailto:nfbmo-owner at nfbnet.org>.  Thanks!
