dnelson Posted May 3, 2011 Share Posted May 3, 2011 I run a very small mail server with a couple of different domains for my family and myself. It's hosted on a VPS located somewhere in America. I'm located in Australia and I've been getting multiple spam about jobs in Australia. I was in Europe for 10 days and I was getting similar spam, but this time for jobs in Europe. Got back home yesterday and now I'm getting spam for jobs in Australia again. I have no idea how the spammer would know my location. The server hasn't changed. It's a VPS Debian box running Postfix, and it's not in Australia or Europe. I am the only person with access to it. I use Roundcube, running under Apache, as a webmail server, on the same Debian VPS. So when I was in Europe access to webmail was, obviously, from Europe. But I don't know how a spammer would get this information unless they were monitoring packets going to and from my server, and getting location from the ip address. Is this possible? Wouldn't the spammer would have to have access to a router somewhere near my server to do so? I'm very security conscious and don't believe that my server has been compromised.
