Name and shame: CDR Outlet sells me out

A tagged address I gave only to CDR Outlet has just received spam, ostensibly for some McDonald's coupons, but probably really a virus.

Now, whether CDR Outlet deliberately sold my email address, or a rogue employee sold a copy of the email list, or a rogue email service provider sold it, it's impossible to tell, but whichever it was, shame on CDR Outlet for not protecting my email better.
