dentaku65 Posted October 23, 2013 Share Posted October 23, 2013 Hi, I'm the webmaster of short url redirection site, and a couple of months ago my provider sent an e-mail to me about "spam complain" of my site as spamvertised, reported by Spamcop Team. I've implemented on my site these security checks in order to create short urls as clean/secure as possible: Internal DB filtering for out-of-policy and/or spam links, hosts, domains, keys (incremented manually) No short urls on short url sites (no short urls chain) No IP address URLs allowed No malicious extensions allowed (cut off link portion containing .exe, .bat, .sh, .pif etcetera extensions) No domains allowed listed on spamhaus, surbl and uribl DNS name resolution (A entry) Honeypot trap .htaccess trap Yeah, a lot of work! :-) I'm writing here because I have some doubts about the definition and assignation of "Spamversited"; my provider reported to me that this kind of spam is "Spamvertised websites, websites that are mentioned in spam messages, are not allowed to be hosted on our servers.", thus my site, due to the nature of his service, can be marked as spamversited even, with all evidence, has not resposability at all or a fleeting indirect responsability. If I understood well this kind of spam is regarding the content (in my case was a content of a e-mail with an url generated from my site) and, to my point of view, this seems to be pretty volatile to decide to mark a site as "only" by a link in a content of an e-mail and, not even an end link; to me this do not proves anything and penalizes my job beyond measure. I'm so surprised that Spamcop consider spam a link inside a content of e-mail; what happens if someone send thousands of spam mail with www.spamcop.net as a content link inside the e-mails? Spamcop will consider itself as a spamvertised? I don't understand... If Spamcop have some SURBL service or similar solution (like Spamhaus) I'll happy to implement it in my site as additional security check. Kind regards, den Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
