MyNameHere Posted October 24, 2013 Share Posted October 24, 2013 I don't know if you've seen these, but for several months I've been getting sales pitches for fake watches. The distinguishing feature is they usually don't have a direct link to the spamvertized website--instead, there is an image with the URL the user can type into the browser. Initially to see what would happen, I started parsing those URLs and reporting them along with the spam, but what I've noticed is that the various URLs always show security [at] powercomm.com as the reporting address. I've never before run into a spammer that always uses the same host. Usually, the spamvertized sites are scattered all over the place, and the reporting addresses vary widely. So does that mean this spammer is hosting its own websites? If so, reporting to powercomm would be a real waste. Looking it up on Google, powercomm.com kind of looks like an LG (electronics company) domain, but I really don't think it is. I tried parsing www.powercomm.com and got a series of reporting addresses that looked familiar, including bora.net and kisa.or.kr. Would it be meaningful to report powercomm to those addresses as a persistent host of spamvertized sites? ??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
