Safe to make Abuse report at OVH.net ?

Since my spammer usually send links with URL redirects in the BODY (directing the user from compromised domains to his own domains) and Spamcop can't recognize those real domains after the redirect is it better to make an abuse report directly to the DNS host where his own domains are based? I don't want to take the risk of OVH exposing me.

Thanks in advance!

IMHO there is no clear answer. Some things to consider:

  1. Sending a report to the spammer's true host may get you identified to the spammer. An ISP that host a spammer may be in it for the money, not the good of all.
  2. The spammer already has your email address, so there is nothing lost if you are exposed in #1 above.
  3. There is a possibility that the ISP used by the spammer does not know about the activities of their client. AND will take action to close them down (for a while anyway.)

Abuse reports I don't see going to spammer just the bit bin.
Spammers once you get spam have your address often scraped from your friends zombie/BOTNET computer

so advise other windows of free malware scan here

Norton Power Eraser is a free tool and doesn't require installation. It just needs to be downloaded and run.

So it gets worse as your email is sold upwards.

I use an abuse e-mail and i usually post the parsed Spamcop reports so there's no risk. They haven't taken action yet. I've reported atleast two or three times now without them doing anything to shut the spam domain down.

As said above i've already made several reports to OVH. They don't care it seems. I have reported to the DNS providers, the MX Mail providers, the CERT divisions etc... Nothing! I am beginning to think i can't write a good enough abuse report for them to taking notice or just doesn't care.

OVH is as bad as GoDaddy.

I see them worse than Godaddy!

Perhaps you can add OVH reports to CERT France?

Complain that their abuse box is asleep at the wheel

Thank you again! But i have tried to send mail to RU-Cert before but it always bounces back with a Delivery Status Failure because they receive it as spam. I might add it doesn't care where i send it from i always get the delivery status failure.

I have been getting spam from the OVH rogue house of spam friends since many years. I am actually getting spam mainly from these IP addresses:

51.255.151.63

51.255.140.244

176.31.42.230 (Portugal)

151.80.165.203

let's say, generally speaking, the most huge flow of crap getting into my mailbox is coming from two subnets: 51.254.* and 51.255.*

Needless to say nothing had changed after sending many complaints both through Spamcop or directly tpo their useless ghost abuse[at] desk and to France CERT as well [1]. It seems neither at FR CERT nor at RIPE to care about these spamming brain injured monkeys. I started also sending reports to

https://www.signal-spam.fr/en/index.php/frontend

and through a Thunderbird plugin to renater.fr but it seems it was unuseful as trying to teach quantum physics to a donkey.

Is there any hope in an earthquake to blast away all that spamming house farm once for all? I am quite fed of getting daily crap from them and no hope to see its end.

[1] Are these addresses correct, at least?

cert[at]cert-ist.com, contact[at]cert.ssi.gouv.fr, certa-svp[at]certa.ssi.gouv.fr,abuse[at]nic.fr

[at]petzi:

as I wrote in another post, I have always been adding CERT FR in my complaints but it seems they are as dumb about getting rid of spam complaints as the unuseful OVH abuse desk is.

Maybe if they'd start receiving some hundreds of newsletters to their abuse desk from many of their victims something could change?

I do not think it would ever be productive to add spam to the system. "Hundreds of newsletters" would probably have the same affect at their abuse desk as all the "Increase your bedroom life" emails I get; I do not bother to read any email from knanderson{AT}instituto.ru
