Description

I was just clearing out of a number held messages from security.lists and I noticed a number of probes from security-announce. That sounds weird.

opensuse-security@opensuse.org is subscribed to security-announce@lists.opensuse.org, but delivery is disabled, so those probes should not have been caused by bounces. However:

It is a regular thing:

Well, it's weird.
In August, there were 73 such bounces, and that seems to correspond to the same number of NDRs from some IEEE listserver. Why they look as if they're coming from 'opensuse-security@opensuse.org', dunno.
