alsonmedia, maybe incorrect reporting address?

Recommended Posts

have been steadily getting AlsonMedia.com sourced spam.  they're reporting address comes up as alson@alsonmedia.com.  Their spam/abuse page gives abuse@alsonmedia.com as the notification address. (https://alsonmedia.com/antispam_policy.html), and abuse.net lists both the alson@ and the abuse@ address. I realize it pulled the alson@ from the domain WHOIS record.  Wasn't sure if it was worth adjusting the reporting address based on their stated abuse reporting destination.

example report: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6696312978zfb08e15f2244f3e87214f2e29b52cabaz

Interesting they list the two addresses.  I have seen it where companies want different abuse addresses to track where it comes in from.  Would be nice if companies would keep their contact information up to date in whois.

I also noticed it is prefering the /23 over the /16.

Using smaller IP block (/ 9 vs. / 16 )
Removing 1 larger (> / 9 ) route(s) from cache

I remember when it was postmaster@blal.blah that address got spammed to oblivion.
Many now want spam reports done on secret web pages. Gmail give a reply to abuse page/form now

I remember when I used to submit tons of reports to the postmaster address.  Kind of interesting that if someone lets the spamming go on, they get spammed, no matter what their address is.  I find it easier to have my address and postmaster sharing the same box and then I can filter on the "To:".
