Possible forgery. Supposed receiving system not associated with any of your mailhosts. No unique hostname found for source: 41.xx.xxx.xxx

Recommended Posts

I was reporting a spam email originating from cantv.net but the originating IP address (41.86.234.165) won't parse/provide reporting addresses. I have run a whois search on the originating IP address (41.86.234.165) and gotten the abuse contacts for said IP address. How do I configure my mailhosts to accept this so when I report emails from this ISP (cantv), IP addresses like this (41.86.234.165) also display abuse contacts to forward the spam to?

This string of IP addresses 41.86.234.0 - 41.86.234.255 originates in Benin.

SpamCop errs in favor of caution

200.11.153.88 is a "webmailer" probably a forged compromised account?

You can add to that report.

the Injection point Benin, Cotonou abuse[at]isoceltelecom.com

41.86.234.165

BOTNET ATTACK HOST

http://cbl.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=41.86.234.165

This IP is infected (or NATting for a computer that is infected) with the Conficker botnet.

TO REMOVE INFECTION

Norton Power Eraser is a Windows free tool and doesn't require installation. It just needs to be downloaded and run.

https://security.symantec.com/nbrt/npe.aspx

BLOCK OUTBOUND PORT 25,

RESERVE FOR LEGIT EMAIL SERVER

Make sure you are connecting to your mail server's 'authenticated mail' port 587 and not the ordinary 'unauthenticated' port 25. (ask your ISP to check for you)

CHANGE TO SECURE PASSWORD

SCAN INFECTED COMPUTER FOR MALWARE

A BOTNET infected computer/server means the all data passing through it may be compromised (bank details, log-on/password, email, etc).

CBL (abuseat.org) lists those computers that are infected with instructions on how to remove BOTNET infections

The following Cisco site shows servers/computers with prior or existing BOTNET infections
