    DNS entries missing?

    Sorry mate, was a bit in a hurry, and didn't think straight: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1173008582z0...2240b0fb1346e4z And yes, it seems you're right Wazoo. How do you work with it though? I'm curious. It seems like it's a "foolproof" way to block services like Spamcop and the likes, by simply making sure you can't get proper NS records, and switching them around. Since 2 am, till now 10 am, I've received 21 spam mails, of which 4 are mails of the same kind - but the IP's different today, and now belonging to isla.net. Bineyyr.info now refers to, just like all the other mails with the same template, both new and old (so apparently they're reusing the same URLs) http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z1173615442z4...57a9603cb921a8z from today.

    DNS entries missing?

    http://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=gettrac...rtid=2073460900 is an example - it's not the bineyyr.info one, but it yields the same responses, from enoughdrive.info And yes, you're right - the nslookup gives an odd response. However mine yields a Server: dns1.cybercity.dk Address: DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds. Non-authoritative answer: Name: bineyyr.info Address: ---------- another from a different nameserver Server: dns2.cybercity.dk Served by: - ns1.cybercity.dk cybercity.dk - ns2.cybercity.dk cybercity.dk Name: bineyyr.info Served by: - A9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - B9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info - C9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - D9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info - E9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - F9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info ---------- and an nslookup from a different ISP only has one response Server: ns.tele.dk Address: Name: bineyyr.info Served by: - C9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - D9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info - E9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - F9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info - A9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.info info - B9.INFO.AFILIAS-NST.ORG info --- My knowledge of DNS inner workings is a bit limited to say what's going on there to be quite honest. Not exactly my usual field of expertise ;-)
  3. It's kinda weird - I never had issues with Spamcop, and I reported God-knows-how-much by now - but a certain type of spam I receive a LOT of every day, refer to a site called xxxxx.info with the xxxxx being something nonsensical (changes every mail) - ALL of those point to the same IP owned by MTCO, but for some obscure reason spamcop tells me it can't resolve the IP of the xxxxx.info-addresses even though I have absolutely no problems grabbing the info from ping, tracert, pathping, online NS databases, etc. I looked this up in previous posts where people were referring to long NS resolving, which is fair enough - but a tracert shows 135 ms lookup time, which shouldn't be over the top. Tracing route to bineyyr.info [] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 <1 ms <1 ms Internal 2 1 ms 1 ms Internal 3 2 ms 3 ms Internal 4 2 ms 2 ms Internal 5 105 ms 106 ms External but belonging to Internal company 6 106 ms 107 ms 106 ms 7 128 ms 128 ms 131 ms tbr1-p014001.n54ny.ip.att.net [] 8 126 ms 126 ms 127 ms tbr1-cl14.cgcil.ip.att.net [] 9 127 ms 126 ms 127 ms 10 129 ms 129 ms 130 ms 11 129 ms 129 ms 128 ms noc-cisco2-gig-0-2.mtco.com [] 12 131 ms 131 ms 132 ms northcisco-ser-1-0.mtco.com [] 13 131 ms 131 ms 131 ms northcisco2-gig-1-0.mtco.com [] 14 130 ms 131 ms 131 ms 03434a-ds3-mtco.mtco.com [] 15 133 ms 132 ms 135 ms 03434b-ds3-5.mtco.com [] I'm getting more than 15 mails a day, all of which refer to various .info addresses, belonging to that IP-address, so something should be done - they even maintain the same basic subject-line template, so they're easily recognizable - but Spamcop can't resolve it. I've sent a mail from a temporary owned address to the hostmaster and abuse department of MTCO to hear what they say, but other than that I'm a bit in the dark to be quite honest. So far Spamcop has sent the reports all over, lastly to Brazil - but as long as the site isn't resolved, it won't be part of the statistics. I haven't read through the other posts nearly enough admittingly, but don't have much time at present (and no, this post only took a couple of minutes to write, I'm a speedtyper :-P) But... what to do? Kudos ~Chris

    Idea to help keep people reporting spam

    A little off, in relation to where the thread has been heading - but as a reply to the initial subject, which is the increasing discouragement, with reporting the spam I'd have to agree that it's getting slightly discouraging at times - especially when the amount of spam doesn't decrease, but rather increase heavily. I've gone from an average of 5-6 pieces of spam a day, to an average of 15-17 pieces. I keep reporting them, since I still believe that one man can make a difference - but I'm starting to think that we might be simply focusing the efforts in the wrong place. The big problem are the ISPs, who don't really do sh... whenever they get these reports - despite having dedicated abuse mail-adresses. I've seen many ISPs from the inside, and they're not really inclined to do anything, until the time it involves legal sanctions. Taking the problem a step further, it's the governments, who don't indite legal sanctions against ISPs, who don't act on spam reports - making it a law. To my knowledge, no law even exists in anything but an extremely vague form in any country. Whether it be so-called civilized countries like the States, or any European country, our laws are still providing WAY too much space to be circumvented - and by far most countries don't even have specific anti-spam laws, which can be focused on the ISPs, to force them to take responsibility. I can't help feeling like we're fighting the symptoms here, since we're lacking the power to fight the disease, which is the governmental indifference in the majority of the worldwide countries, and safe havens in non-industrialized countries, where spammers move their production sites to, to make sure that nothing can be done legally. We need a world police, based on the internet protocols, able to shut down entire ISPs in the intercontinental switches and the owners of the worldwide IP-adresses, if they fail to comply with generally accepted rules - but then we're back to Echelon and Big Brother, whom NOBODY wants looking over our back, whenever we do anything. Basically, we're lacking a way to really pack a punch against these annoying and criminal people, since we have no direct power over the respective governments, ISPs, or even the IP-adresses themselves. - And with the launch of IPv6, we're all going to be a lot of trouble, since the amount of adresses multiply by an insane number, creating even more play room for these criminals. What do we do then? What can we do, each of us, to provide a better solution to this problem, apart from reporting the bad IP-adresses to the ISPs, who generally couldn't care less? Well, I'm personally up for any and all suggestions, if it brings a result. But in the meantime, remember that this DOES serve a cause - we might not cause a lot of spammers to get shut down, but just as every spam mail we receive is a nuisance, so is every single IP-address they have to abandon to them. They have the cards, but if we're stubborn enough, we can still make a slow, very slow, turn into power, also simply by bringing awareness. These reports create a lot of publicity, and the issue is getting adressed in several places. Even in Denmark, where I'm from, a small 5 million people country, some of the political parties are discussing laws to force ISPs to block malicious IP-adresses, so somebody IS doing something in some places. Now we just need the rest of the world to help apprehend these privacy-invaders. And we'll get them, eventually. We'll get them. Don't give up! ~Noia

    I send maybe 10 emails a day

    Brilliant post... If you can't send to some people, because they blocked you, I would start out with asking myself "Why might these people have blocked me, knowing that they blocked me particularly?" hint: because they don't like stuff they didn't ask for. Or what is otherwise known as spam. My heart bleeds for you. ~Noia
