Spamnophobic Posted November 29, 2017 Share Posted November 29, 2017 Spamcop often sends spam reports to the bitbucket (/devnull). Very often this is justified. For instance when a spam includes a link to the valid URL of a commercial bank or business, trying to make their phish pitch seem genuine. That the well-known URL has been included in the spam is in no way the fault of the bank or business and there is nothing they can do about it. However, recently some web businesses, such as amazon.com, have been compromised and e-mail addresses exclusively shared with them by their customers, such as me, have suddenly started receiving spam. And very nasty spam at that: links which if clicked will encrypt every file on my system and make me liable for extortionate payments: ransomware. This was today the case with my amazon.com account. I was therefore very disappointed to see SpamCop protecting amazon.com by not allowing my report of this serious security breach to be sent to postmaster@amazon,com Of course I could send a copy of this report myself, but amazon would simply reject my e-mail as being from an insignificant individual and not even read it, whereas SpamCop reports carry status, which as a faithful SpamCop reporter of many years standing, I feel myself entitled to leverage. SpamCop should cease to protect postmaster@amazon,com from SpamCop reports, because amazon.com has clearly been hacked and their customer confidentiality breached.
