  1. DavidT, thanks for pointing out the Twitter address.
  2. I use sneakemail.com in front. I might try making sneakemail direct the likely spam to spamcop.net, and the mail that comes on non-spam addresses elsewhere (e. g. Yahoo or Google). But my immediate problem is I tried to register an online account with a firm with which I already have a relationship, and their web software doesn't provide a way to resend the confirmation e-mail.
  3. It has been several minutes since I sent test mail to myself, but it's not showing up in my inbox on webmail.spamcop.net. The last spam I received is from 1 3/4 hr. ago.
  4. Spamcop Webmail Down -- Can't Get In Via the Web
  5. By "webmail", I meant Spamcop webmail. Now when I go to both of the links given by petzl, it shows my reports that I made after discovering the problem. When I discovered the problem, when I logged in, the page I reached right after login told me that there had been bounces from my mail address (which is Spamcop webmail). I pressed the button that indicates that the problem is "resolved". So maybe the Spamcop reporting interface drops all reports that come from a bouncing e-mail address. So, anyway, it looks as though whatever the problem was, it is resolved now. I can see the reports that come from my reporting now. Thanks for the help. Jack Waugh
  6. When I go to my "Past Reports" tab, it shows no reports, even though I made some recently via webmail. The reporting account I'm logged into has the same credentials as my webmail account. Jack Waugh
  7. I did another partial de-obfuscation of another malware delivery vector. The result is still quite obfuscated and amounts to 15022 characters of JS. I don't know of any place to post my partial result for in case anyone wants to take it further.
  8. I, too, am struck by how much our reports differ. Some of the entities such that my address with them has somehow leaked are: - Ameritrade - Zecco Trading - Smartgroups (defunct web service) - ContrarianPicks (not surprising; an obvious scam in the first place) - Return Path (not surprising) - StuffIt (software for Microsoft O/S) - this forum None of the addresses produces any hits in Google search.
  9. Had to unfriend TPB chums to get unblocked. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/10/13/du...cuses_spamhaus/
  10. These are just remarks in passing; I'm not asking for solutions. Today I received a spam to an address of mine that I have published continuously all over the web for the last at least 13 to maybe 15 years, and it reminded me how infrequently that happens. By far most of the spams I receive (maybe 20 or 25 a day) come on addresses that I gave to corporations when signing up for their services. An intermediate number (a few a month) come to an address that I used (stupidly) as my name on Wikipedia. All the latter are in Chinese.
  11. Well, I think that if anyone wanted to submit it to said rating sites (which I won't take the time to do; sorry), they'd be standing on firm ground. I have not the slightest doubt that it is malware of some kind.
  12. If anyone reading this has the time and inclination to decode an obfuscated JS program, you can "curl" it from http://upqwtqkzt.www1.biz/main.php (referenced in spam) (if it hasn't already been taken down or changed). It shouldn't be that hard to substitute for the E V A L something that will display the embedded code, if you know java scri_pt and the DOM. [edit] live link removed
  13. Despite all the limitations I asserted (correctly or not) above about switching to using a virtual folder for highlighting spam, I now do exactly that. I don't have the redirection to "Held Mail" turned on. Everything comes to my inbox. I still have filters that send to Trash anything flagged from the Spamcop blacklist or having above a certain SpamAssassin score. These leave in my inbox the messages I really want to report. So I go to my "spam" virtual folder, which exposes just the messages in my Inbox that came on the addresses that only spammers use. I report those messages as spam quite fast and regularly. Once that virtual folder looks empty, I can go to my Inbox and see my real mail almost free of spam. A "Thank you" to the person who first brought up here the idea of using a virtual folder for highlighting spam to report.
  14. Yum, pork shoulder. OK, thanks. There's a great scene in the movie _The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio_, a move I highly recommend. The wife and children are eating caviar from a spree through a store that the wife won in some jingle contest (it's set in the 1950's). The husband just wants to eat Hormel pam brand canned pork shoulder.
