New domains regularly used, host of site not found


Recommended Posts

Hi

Example: the domain below was created today with Namecheap). Spamcop does not find it hosted, neither do other tools I have tried.

However, browsing to it finds it and redirects to the scam website (domain created in September with Namecheap)

The actual target today is very similar to all of them TryWayTipsToday.com (Namecheap domain registration 23 Sept and hosted at 209.141.53.16 fdias@frantech.ca)

The sender of the spam makes the email look like it was from a friend or relative. It tends to say there are photographs I will find interesting so I should click the link…

A long history of this going back YEARS, but only recently became so regular and hard to actually report without clicking the link:

Any ideas how the spammer is doing this so effectively to make it hard to report?

The trick that some of the spammers use is to have a invalid DNS server in their list. Then the results are intermittently returned. I have found that I could just reload the tracking URL and it would usually pick up the address.

Thanks - I need to learn a bit more about DNS I think

This one is VERY effective. None of the above could be reported over the recent months (Spamcop can’t handle this DNS issue)

Spamcop says it’s a fake, not found, no reporting address.

Browse to it though… it answers, it redirects like all the others did/do.

What are they doing? Why can’t SpamCop see them?

When you see the "IP not found" and "discarded as fake", but it shows up with a nslookup or a dig then you can just refresh the page before you report it and most of the time SpamCop will see the IP address.

I will try an quick explanation. It is suggested for a group to setup multiple DNS servers, especially to get around outages. DNS can have a few responses, such as good domain (you get the internet address), timeout (no reply in allotted time), or bad domain (NXDOMAIN). Each DNS lookup is expected to rotate between servers.

The timeout for one server can cause an attempt to look up the domain on an alternate server.

The NXDOMAIN will cause the lookup to immediately to stop and not try other servers. This is when SpamCop reports the "IP not found". If the spammers know the IP address where the SpamCop lookup attempt is coming from, then they can turn off the responses to cause SpamCop to think it is a bad address.

Yeah, Namecheap has been getting these regularly for weeks, with a growing length of history!
