It appears that the Epsilon databreach was not the first in the chain, it appears that upstream providers where targeted first to gain a list of other addresses to spear fish.  I kinda doubt that this was all planned, I think it was more targets of opportunity.  The class of target may have been the target, but not Epsilon it self.

As a side note I am enjoying all of the new spam.
