All spams reporting to "abuse#iana.org@devnull.spamcop.net"

Recommended Posts

I started seeing this a couple of months ago, at first I thought it was some sort of statistical collecting address since I was fighting a lot of spams from ocn.ad.jp servers (where I usually ended up having to manually enter their Abuse department address of abuse_support@ocn.ad.jp) but it seems to be appearing all the time now, even when the headers show other sources.

I've been using Spamcop reporting for years and I'm reporting the spams the same way that I have always had but now I'm seeing abuse#iana.org@devnull.spamcop.net (Notes) pop up, even when it has other sources stated in the headers.  On some I've had to manually enter the abuse department addresses since it would not pick up on the originating IP.  I seem to get this 80-90% of the time.

I hope this is what you are looking for as far as Tracking URLs:

I AM REVEREND FATHER TONY JOHNSON SHEDRACK

 

As a test I sent myself several emails and then submitted them to SpamCop by pasting the entire email on the spamcop.net home page.  NOTE: I did not click on "send spam report" - I cancelled the spam report but I wanted to see what addresses would appear as to who it was reporting to.

Test 1:  I am located in the US and use AT&T as my internet service provider, I also  have a server through GoDaddy/WildWestDomains.  I sent an email from one of my server website addresses to my Gmail account.  The following report was generated:
From: "[[[removed by me]]]" <[[[removed by me]]]> (test)
 This is a multipart message in MIME format.
 ------=_NextPart_000_0018_01D42272.7B270D40

Report spam to:

Re: 2002:aa7:d9c9:0:0:0:0:0 (Administrator of network where email originates)
To: abuse#iana.org@devnull.spamcop.net (Notes)

 

Test 2:
I tried another legit email - once again I was sure not to submit any spam report but I only wanted to see what it would generate the report as.  I'm a Miitary Veteran so I tried an real email from the VA Administration which was sent to one of my Gmail addresses:
From: "Department of Veterans Affairs" <No_Reply_Allowed@va.gov>

Report spam to:

Re: 2002:a81:288f:0:0:0:0:0 (Administrator of network where email originates)
To: abuse#iana.org@devnull.spamcop.net (Notes)

Test 3:

I tried a few more tests and when I sent a test message from my domain address back to the same address it did pick up on the correct originating IP.  It wanted to send a spam report to AT&T since that is my ISP but not where my domain that the test email was sent from. 

 

What am I doing wrong here?  Thank you for any assistance.

This may or may not be associated with the issue but I was just researching out the phishing spam I received today and reported through SpamCop, since the header showed who the domain was and who the webmail server was.

The sending address was from edesigngroup.net, which pings out to 160.153.73.73.

When I went to ping.eu to research out things I did a whois on the IP 160.153.73.73 and it came up with the default

I know the IP is GoDaddy's so I ran the same IP on their WHOIS again, this time selecting the "full info" option on ping.eu's lookup service, and it displayed the proper information on the IP in question and not the generic iana.org info:

SpamCop often gets reporting address wrong or can't find them. I use a freeware windows program to check.
Direct link for instalation download here  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/ipnetinfo_setup.exe it's hard to find on webpage

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/ipnetinfo.html but it's at the bottom/end of page

Hello Goodnerd,

 

the problem you're having is unfortunately known to spamcop, and is a problem for us "reporting spam".

Gmail is one of the biggest causes of this problem, although I have heard that Yahoo! is doing the same.

The reason is, that theses email providers have been inserting a 6to4 IPv6 address for their Received: headers.

These 6to4 addresses begin with "2002:a".

you can submit the spam by changing the following in the topmost Received: line:

if you have

Received: by 2002:aa7:d9c9:0:0:0:0:0 with SMTP id h22-v6csp6451088uaf; Tue, 24 Jul 2018 05:25:31 -0700 (PDT)
             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
             6to4 IPv6 address is a problem

place the IPv6 address in parentheses and add the equivalent 10.167.217.201 in front like this:

Received: by 10.167.217.201 (2002:aa7:d9c9:0:0:0:0:0) with SMTP id h22-v6csp6451088uaf; Tue, 24 Jul 2018 05:25:31 -0700 (PDT)
             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                   add            parenthesized

That should enable you to report your spam

Thank you both for very useful information.   

It's good to know that SpamCop is aware of the issue and I'm now inserting parentheses from spams received at Gmail.   Both the ipnetinfo and the parentheses fix works like a charm.  Thanks again!

How can i find out the IPV4 equivalent?
