  1. How do you find an upstream provider?

    What do you mean by "I'll get loads of mail"?  And "ask for receipts"?

    Another thought - why does spamcop allow ISPs to opt out of receiving abuse reports?  Spamcop is merely a tool to allow users to send reports without all the hard work.  In fact there could even be an option so that the abuse report would be sent directly from me, using my SMTP server, so spamcop had nothing to do with it (apart from preparing the report for me).

    (1) When an email is sent to confirm sender receives it a "read receipt" is included with email. As to getting lots of email some investigation is done where further evidence may be required

    (2) Usually refusing SpamCop reports is done because of cluelessness or not wanting to offend their "nice paying customers"

    This mainly means they won't respond to personal abuse reports either

    In email subject line of my personal abuse reports to such losers, I simply would put (In this case)

    "PERMANENT EMAIL BLOCK FOR IP RANGE 85.155.32.0 to 85.155.38.255"

    which is ALL of "CABLEMODEM-AUNA-CANARIAS" network.

    Don't know if if helps probably not, often/always such companies find themselves being added to more and more blocklists. The good bit is they sometimes think its you who have initiated their problems of being added to blocklists (in reality it's themselves)


  2. I am now getting lots and lots of spam that is held due to cn.rbl.cluecentral.net.

    Most of these would not have been noticeable as 'leakers' since they mostly have high SpamAssassin numbers.

    Since the 1st June one leaker

    and  91 caught.

  3. Here's a whole week of "china leakers"

    I have copied them to Spamcop mail support.

    Here are some more China source that shouldn't have got through since I

  4. I just received spam from 220.164.222.17.

    However, 17.222.164.220.cn.rbl.cluecentral.net resolves to 127.0.0.2, which means that it should have been blocked. The IP is not a recent addition to the RBL, I already noticed the exact same problem a few days ago.

    What's this? The RBL is not always lightning fast to respond, maybe there's a timeout which is too short?

  5. While you think this is a conspiracy, I think it is simply overworked, under trained support personnel. 

    Adelphia's agreement from their web site: http://www.adelphia.com/esafety/Adelphia_H...rev11_15_04.pdf

    I have also requested information about what these "consumption limits" are for the Adelphia network though they are written vague enough that they might not be currently in effect but the right is reserved.

    Welcome to the "new world order" :blink:

    Australian "Supermarkets" are into a annoying habit of moving/changing product whereabouts of goods

    The "official" explanation is that they wish all stores to be uniform with one

    The real reason is that the current "text book" (they all use) states the longer you can keep customers in stores the more they buy

    Television current "textbooks" claim that by delaying advertised program times (often by 30 minutes) It "hooks" people into watching 30 minutes of some boring horror like "the young and the useless" to get you hooked on both programs

    Politics are finding that using the "Power of Nightmares" keeps you effectively voting for someone you probably shouldn't (banned in the USa & probably Australia)

    A Canadian Magician friend of mine "The GREAT Wazzoo" (of all names) Makes animal balloons which he sells to kids, his carnival operatives "pop" the balloons The kids cry and parents buy more?

    I find it hard to believe that "uselessness" or dopiness is a theme that ISP's use to cover up the antics they all use from the SAME text book other ISP's use is believable


  6. Reply from support desk:

    In the mean time for four days now Alselphia.net are still spewing spam as fast as the modem can push it out.

    This is only one of a great many zombies pouring out spew from different providers In this case I have sent unmunged reports and even contacted Aldelphia by their web form. Still the spew continues with no end in site

    I most certainly believe that many ISP's do find they conveniently make money by allowing this to happen In fact ISP's are often the source of the trojan that starts it as this article I believe correctly infers

    Your ISP may be hosting spam zombies!


  7. What ISP's do you know of that "charge an extra fee to a residential, broad-band user for using so much bandwidth"?  The extra traffic may slow down the users experience, but I know of no residential high-speed ISP's (at least in the US, I know you are not) that charge for bandwidth used.  Business accounts on the other hand are (at least my connection at work is) but are likely to have more protection and monitoring of that bandwidth.

    28152[/snapback]

    Not many in Australia New Zealand and much of Europe that do not charge for excess bandwidth Particually with cheaper end monthly accounts (example)

    Regional Residential ADSL 512/128k 512K Value/200MB 6 month contract $24.95 CC 200MB Free then 15c/MB (they do have a maximum charge limit of $35 on top of this however)

    Whats your expalnation for Adelphia not stopping this Zombie spew (I have sent them over 20 unmunged reports since sunday and still sending, all are being caught in my VER folder). Bandwidth is not free and someone will have to cough up.

    I'm also told that you are wrong about the USA not charging (particually) those that have minimal accounts not being charged extra for excess bandwidth (I would also be going over the/your ISP fine print)


  8. Plagerised from Reduce spam by educating your ISP

    spam zombies make money for the ISP

    Think about it. If one residential user's PC is sending 100,000 spams/day, and we assume a typical spam message is 4 Kb, that's a transmission of more than 11 Gb/month! Most ISPs are going to charge an extra fee to a residential, broad-band user for using so much bandwidth.

    What's worse is that ignorant users may not realize why their bandwidth is so high (when they see the surcharges on their bill). When they phone up the customer support about thier bill, the ISP may encourage them to upgrade to a higher forfeit bandwidth package. Zombies are not the only reason why bandwidth usage could be high. Peer-to-peer applications (BitTorrent, E-mule, etc.) are very popular. A user running one of these applications and also infected with a zombie would have to be fairly sophisticated to be able to know what percentage of bandwidth was due to zombie spams originating from his PC.

    I'm not saying that ISPs have a formal policy to not shut down zombies because they generate traffic. But it's clear that if we allow them to keep their zombies, they are profiting from it!


  9. I am totally shocked and sad. I had NO warning about "no outgoing mail" and as a licensed Eudora user, I must live with sending mail from web.

    You are right SpamCop NEEDS a SMTP server

    Even if it becomes a SpamCop Plus (Bond required) to deter some loon not securing their computer or even spamming :wacko:

    If bond lost it be donated to SpamCops Legal fund (suggestion) To get Plus back again another US$100 bond be paid. The losing of this money is entirerly at the descretion of Email owner/operator or his appointed minder/s (SpamCop Deputies?)

    Windows users only have to ensure they are at least using the freeware (microsoft ones you have already paid for) programs my Signature links refer to, to maintain secure computing

    IE-SPYAD while worth considering is not needed (Unless the PC is operated by "Naive" users)

    (the password saver is freeware for 20 passwords usable both from PC as well as from USB -

    SpamCop email have a maximum of 30 keyboard characters I sugest using a minimum of at least eight Alphanumeric characters 30 random alpha characters are equal to 240bit security, Banks use 128 bit security)


  10. Has anyone seen these spam(s)? What you do about it?

    It seems reporting the website has many removed which helps deter spammers

    The problem is, as always, providers reacting to abuse reports not at all?

    http://www.senderbase.org/?searchBy=ipaddr...204.186.129.219

    shows your reported IP still spewing spam up 12000% over a day

    SpamCop has most if not all of these IP's blocked very early in the piece

    PAys to dump your provider if they have not protected the email address they dump on you (these are NOT free) Demand a discount for the crappy "service" they have you pay for as compensation for not using their compulsory email This link explains why

    Get


  11. Is it dictionary-able?  Just a first name and initial?  I get about 30 e-mail a day to a gmail account that's never been used but it just a first name and initial.

    28099[/snapback]

    I had two bounces which included the addresses They were in alpahbetical order but looked like just masses of email addresses. The servers on what I see as new trogans are really spewing spam like up over 5000% a day (I have found 4 zombies now being used for this spam attack)

    Don't understand german but sites referanced seem to be anti-immigration into Germany?


  12. ok maybe i was not clear enough

    spam i usually get is for me to buy viagra, software, whatever.

    now those "new" spams i got are : 1 subject, 1 line ("Full article" or something) then a link to a REAL site that does not sell anything, like the one i just copy-pasted there.

    since my last post, i received 6 others just like that!

    is that clearer? does anyone have the same type of spam?

    ps i do not want to give more exposure to whatever, just delete the link if you will

    28083[/snapback]

    Yes they have been sending to me and getting reported and blocked :D

    http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z763884465ze1...7e333bb9e5902ez

    I'm suspecting some spammer grub has found these "forums" and is just putting email addresse in them? (Mine seem to be sent to spamcop domains possiby a disgruntled spammer :rolleyes: )

    Keep reporting them at last it keeps the trojanised PC in the SCBL


  13. Well, it is listed now (5/15/2005 6:50AM EDT):

    69.166.151.154 listed in bl.spamcop.net (127.0.0.2)

    If there are no reports of ongoing objectionable email from this system it will be delisted automatically in approximately 22 hours.

    28068[/snapback]

    Now that this clown has blocked that (69.166.151.154) IP "it" has now switched to IP 210.23.137.241 still sending to a spamcop domain address last being X-User<AT>spamcop<DOT>net

    Just seemed to take a lot of abuse reports to block a "DUL"


  14. Today I reported this (full report)

    http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z763693994zcc...390f91f5241fbez

    (I usually quick-report but wanted the link reported...)

    The parser could not resolve the link.

    When I look at the parse and keep refreshing the screen the parser can sometimes resolve the link (reports would be sent to: schlund.de) and sometimes not.

    A temporary parser hiccup?

    Or is link resolving as random as it seems in this case?

    What you see in Windows is not what a "safe" or text browser sees SpamCop tries to resolve URL's before reporting them. If SpamCop cannot connect it won't report (SpamCop tries to err on the side of caution)

    this is what a safe browser from SamSpade see's

    You can however report these URL's yourself if you have time and think there is a need to (The site is in german and even the translation makes little sense to me Seems to be an imigration site?)


  15. Hi Steve, thanks for your research into this matter.

    Do you have any suggestions on how we can convey our no spam policy? Providing a free email account seemed to us to be the best solution, but apparently our IP has been blocklisted unfairly, even though SafeMemos.com required a double opt-in.

    28047[/snapback]

    Probably find help on many sites Abuse Net has a very7 good one

    If you go to spamcops website you can also get copies of SpamCop abuse reports by clicking HERE.


  16. http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblock&ip=69.166.151.154

    It's listed as a dialup by MAPS? Possibly now a zombie cable modem

    The owner has not read my signature (seems to be attacking spamcop addresses? All are addressed to mailhost<AT>spamcop<DOT> net with a different from address)

    Reported 6 times today

    69.166.151.154

    Is sending German political nonsense linking to various german webbased chat forum sites IP locator has it's German source as Cleveland, OH, US

    SenderBase has it spewing email today, going up in stats every time I look at present up 1155% over 30 days (lunch time Sydney was 115%)


  17. Yes, is there any way of doing this please?  I currently have four Spamcop mailboxes, and I have links set up to take me into VER for all of them.  I would certainly start to use the Webmail interface if I didn't have to manually log in to each mailbox.

    For windows machines

    Password Depot offers 20 passwords for doing this in freeware mode. Which makes logging in a doddle and secure. This program will work from your PC, a USB drive as well (on any other Windows computer)

    remember the maximum password length for webmail is 30 characters (alphanumeric is best) You need a password of your own to access and open the PasswordDepot list you create


  18. ...Microsoft, Massachusetts target spammers in lawsuit.

    ...Excerpts:

    27902[/snapback]

    Confirms my view that one should NEVER accept the email address your ISP dumps on you (And demand a discount for not having one)

    The only reason spammers spam is because ISP's do nothing to stop them. In fact they encourage them. If spammers could not get through to your inbox they would have no point in trying

    A Hotmail account is very good option because Microsoft hunt them down with intentions to take what money they have and then jail them. Hotmail also offer a very effective spam filter and a whitelist (which overrides all black/blocklist's)

    Of course a SpamCop email address is the only address you will ever need. SpamCop accurately put only legit email in your inbox and spam in a Very EasyReporting (VER) folder. ISP's of course delete legit email and only allow spam in the email folder they compulsory give you (It's NOT free! You and your milked bank account are what pay for it)

    That said one should be a bit cautious whith handing out your main address and use a Free Hotmail account as first contact always with a Hard_2_guess<AT>hotmail<DOT>com logon (eight Alphanumerical or better)


  19. Complaint raised about the possible "advertising" in petzl's post .... to resolve the complaint issue, a bit of editing was done to remove the specific links to the specific hard drives offered.  For your shopping/auctioning convenience, http://www.ebay.com offers some localization features .....

    27746[/snapback]

    Just pointing out that the drives I linked to were located in USA, I'm in Australia and have no connection to the person/s selling the drives (I included the link to best prices I could see on EBAY without auction/bidding it also provided specifications as always there would of been even better prices and as one waits they drop further)

    I did try and get information on making Bootable USB drives some time ago in "spamcop.geeks" as it provides possible a way of not carrying a Laptop with you when travelling. I did get some feedback, it seemed some interested but did not know how it was done (Now they do)

    The size of units fit in top pocket no power supply needed and are a big plus for me in my present task with my company who use the same Desktops through out
