What is Knujon On About?

Recommended Posts

I go this this email from Knujon today and I'm wondering what the SC reference is about.

"Hello,

Sorry for the lack of communication.

We have been digging into a scandal which has consumed all of our time, but

it will be worth it. The final product will shake internet governance to its

core. This is all due to the contributions KnujOn members have made to this

project and the issues directly relate to your reported abuse.

We will be relocating data centers shortly to resolve a number of issues,

some of you have already noted. The servers at COLDRAIN will gradually stand

down and be replaced. We are in the process of setting up a new data center

in the next few days.

We have also noted the news about SpamCop and will accept any former members

and do what we can to handle their traffic. The issue is being taken very

seriously.

If you have sent us specific questions we will answer them in time. Thank

you for understanding.

-Garth"

Possibly this: http://mail.spamcop.net/news.php

Sep 27, 2014

[10:49 EDT] As was previously communicated, beginning September 30, SpamCop Email will no longer store email for you. If you are logging in here to read your email, you need to set up forwarding as soon as possible. All spamcop.net, cesmail.net, and cqmail.net addresses will continue to work, but will need to be forwarded to another email system such as your ISP, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. for you to read. To set up forwarding, login here, click Options, then click SpamCop Tools.

I got my copy from KnujOn today. No to be disparaging but I have not known Garth (KnujOn) to respond to something the same day (27 Sept).

On the other hand, the word about the changes with CES mail have been public for some time. I would not think KnujOn is thinking about any similar service. In the last 12 months, and as late as last week, they have been having "issues" with their ISP, needing to move all their email from TLD .net to .us and having periods of all spam submissions/emails bouncing. Sounds like Garth did alude to their problems/changes in his email.

An idea that makes sense would be KnujOn forwarding to SpamCop all spam reported to them to KnujOn. but what do I know.

No, there's nothing strange about that. I reported the SpamCop "Dear John" letter on the Knujon forum the same day it was received.

Of COURSE that's a BIG DEAL. Knujon and Spamcop were an excellent duo, working in concert to squash spam.

I'm only sorry more SpamCop users didn't participate with Knujon because it would have been much more effective.

You see, Spamcop had the engines to segregate the spams, dig up the spamvertised sites, and file reports.

I Saved the "Held" mail after reporting through spamcop, then forwarded that compressed mailbox (sometimes dozens of megs) to Knujon.

Now Knujon has the analysis system to run the metrics on the spamvertised sites and then, through governmental and ICANN lobbying, bring pressure to bear on the rogue registrars, and cyber criminal ISPs. Many have been shut down.

The nice thing about Knujon is they also keep all the member's metrics. So you can look up the spam you've reported and see how many, who, and where that particular criminal stands in the reporting schedule. Since joining Knujon (almost the day they opened) I've reported more than 67,000 spams. A portion of those providers were closed.

It's a shame about Spamcop ... I've not found any provider who stores that spam and reports it. I cannot get Spamcop's email to accept my forwarded spam, and unless I report one-by-one through the online form -- they don't get reported.

We're witnessing the end of spam reporting.

Nobody is going to go to the trouble to manually report dozens to hundreds of spams a day.

I found a provider using HORDE that is very close to the spamcop interface, and could import the mbox files downloaded from Spamcop. The reporting component is the only thing now gone.

:-(

And all those who jumped to Gmail have done the world a great disservice. Google intentionally refuses spam and cybercrime reports because all that traffic adds to their metrics for selling ads. They are also storing, filtering and analyzing your mail on a moment-to-moment basis for more advertising metrics. It would be good if nobody used Gmail, or Yahoo mail for that matter.

Here : try this experiment ...

Invent a new domain and new email address. Set it up. Now register with Google. Now, measure the time it takes for the first spam to arrive. Our most recent event (prompted by Spamcop ending mail services) was 34 minutes and some odd seconds. The first spam did not come from Google, but it was also "unroutable" to Spamcop reporting. ????? 34 minutes. Now, a week later, this address is getting several dozen spams a week. And that's only because I cranked up the ISPs spam filters. Go figure

If you wanted to know what I've been doing in my spare time ... is donating my time to Safenetting, and the User Group Network community service web sites . . . http://www.pinterest.com/showker/safenetting/ and . . . http://www.safenetting.com/

&nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp SpamCop (and how would know better?) tells us that only a relatively small portion of their spam statistics came from "SpamCop" e-mail members. Even were that not so, the surest way for an IP address to get listed in the SpamCop blacklist is for it to send spam to a SpamCop spam Trap, so as long as the spammers are finding spam Trap addresses, they'll get listed.

What do you mean register with Google? The reason I'm asking is, I also set up a new domain because of SpamCop email services being discontinued, but I don't think it's registered with Google in any way.

I pretty much figured it would get spam since .us domains don't seem to have the privacy option. That's why my spamcop address is the domain contact, technical contact, etc. I assumed the spammers were getting the info from whois databases, especially since most of the first few spams were congratulating me on my new domain and advertising various services that people running other domains might be interested in.

Thanks for your comment. It cheers me up to know I'm not the only one that doesn't think it's too much trouble. Of course, efficiency is a key.

For example, since Yahoo tends to have issues with the "forward as attachment" option from time to time (as discussed in at least two threads on this server), I keep it efficient by using an IMAP client that lets me get the message source quickly and easily.

For anyone who is finding it time-consuming to report spam because of hassles getting the message source or forwarding to spamcop, I would suggest posting a message in an appropriate place on this server, so that your fellow users can try to help you. However, as noted above, there are already a couple threads on Yahoo and they've pretty much reached the point where all possible workarounds have been discussed.

For anyone who needs a little cheering on, just think, when enough spams are reported, spammers get rejected like this:

rejectlog.6.gz:2014-10-08 04:15:05 H=([192.168.2.33]) [87.235.36.76] F=<test[at]live.com> rejected RCPT <inzaclubc[at]yahoo.es>: DNSBL listed at bl.spamcop.net

I don't know what they see on their side, but I'm sure it isn't welcoming. :)
