How on earth


Recommended Posts

Apparently my shortly to be commissioned DNS server which doesn't have an rDNS working yet, is spamming. See below.

Now there is no SMTP server on this Win2K box, and BIND is playing up too :( but that is a different story,

So can someone please explain how I got reported, I don't mind at all as I have no intention of running an SMTP server on that IP.

There is a problem with that machine, it has probably some kind of worm or it has been hacked. You don't have to be running an smtp server to send spam it is built into many worms.
