trifakir Posted May 21, 2005 Share Posted May 21, 2005 Hi Guys, I'm not sure that this is the proper place for the question, I will contact the IEEE administrators as well. It seems that somebody had hacked the mailing lists of IEEE and is sending a lot of unsolicited e-mail messages. The whole thing doesn't look like spam, it is in German (and I don't understand German), but from first sight it seems to be neo-nazi propaganda (there were links to some NPD websites). Below is one of the messages (with my e-mail and mail hosts changed): <<< quoted message begin Return-Path: <stuart[at]silicondefense.com> Received: from trinidad ([unix socket]) by trinidad (Cyrus v2.1.18) with LMTP; Sat, 21 May 2005 20:09:10 +0200 X-Sieve: CMU Sieve 2.2 Received: by trinidad.tobago.com (Postfix, from userid 99) id BB994A2222; Sat, 21 May 2005 20:09:10 +0200 (CEST) Received: from engine.ieee.org (engine.ieee.org [220.127.116.11]) by trinidad.tobago.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id 5A016A2221 for <joe[at]doe.com>; Sat, 21 May 2005 20:09:10 +0200 (CEST) Received: from gemini3.ieee.org (gemini3.ieee.org [18.104.22.168]) by engine.ieee.org (Switch-3.1.2/Switch-3.1.2) with ESMTP id j4LI9c5s010554 for <john[at]ieee.org>; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:38 -0400 (EDT) Received: from gemini3.ieee.org (localhost [127.0.0.1]) by localhost.ieee.org (Postfix) with ESMTP id D7F2939C20 for <john[at]ieee.org>; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:37 -0400 (EDT) Received: from hormel4.ieee.org (hormel4.ieee.org [22.214.171.124]) by gemini3.ieee.org (Postfix) with ESMTP id 91EB439C2B for <john[at]ieee.org>; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:37 -0400 (EDT) Received: from hormel4.ieee.org (localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]) by hormel4.ieee.org (8.12.11/8.12.11) with ESMTP id j4LI9abc019173 for <john[at]ieee.org>; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:36 -0400 Received: (from defang[at]localhost) by hormel4.ieee.org (8.12.11/8.12.11/Submit) id j4LI9arg019168 for <john[at]ieee.org>; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:36 -0400 X-MIMEDefang-Relay-9fd2428f5e481703021ef1ea05965b7e1a29e393: 126.96.36.199 Received: from ypmnmohk.com (client-188.8.131.52.speedy.net.pe [184.108.40.206]) by hormel4 (envelope-sender <stuart[at]silicondefense.com>) (MIMEDefang) with ESMTP id j4LI9GHA018960; Sat, 21 May 2005 14:09:36 -0400 (EDT) From: stuart[at]silicondefense.com To: uzisfnxefv[at]ieee.org Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 17:56:31 UTC Subject: Paranoider Deutschenmoerder kommt in Psychiatrie Importance: Normal X-Priority: 3 (Normal) X-MSMail-Priority: Normal MIME-Version: 1.0 Message-ID: <05ff.d459609dec7926[at]silicondefense.com> Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" X-UCE-Filter-Settings: alexander_feldman redirected to 90_OPT_OUT X-Scanned-By: IEEE UCE Filtering Service (uce . ieee . org) on 220.127.116.11 X-spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.0.3 (2005-04-27) on trinidad[at]tobago.com X-spam-Level: * X-spam-Status: No, score=1.6 required=5.0 tests=INVALID_DATE,MISSING_MIMEOLE, NO_REAL_NAME,PRIORITY_NO_NAME autolearn=no version=3.0.3 Lese selbst: http://brandenburg.rz.fhtw-berlin.de/poetschke.html >>> quoted message end My question is - is that spam, if it is, how shall we proceed (e.g. blacklisting IEEE ), etc. Any comment or idea is welcome.
