geographic source of spam


Recommended Posts

from a quick Google, page pulled up at http://files.altn.com/HowTo/UseTarpittingt...geSpammers.html

Tarpitting discourages spamming without permanently blocking an offending IP address. Tarpitting works by monitoring traffic and applying sluggish responses to remote IPs showing spam-like behavior. For example, if an IP sends too many messages to users during an email session, tarpitting starts slowing MDaemon’s response. If the spam-like behavior includes excessive unknown addresses during a session, the remote server can be suspended from access for a user-specified amount of time.
