Charter Communications autoreply bounces


Recommended Posts

I get the following autoreply bounces from SC notifications sent to Charter Communications (abuse at charter.net), when the IP block complained about really belongs to "WORLDWIDE WEB WORKS, LLC.". according to ARIN. However, a short trace reveals that Charter is the upstream provider for WWWL (through 71.14.172.253).

Should SC admins contact Charter and make sure they are actually wishing to receive SC reports about WWWL (as it doesn't seem like so because they get treated like this)?

These types of bounces come from "spamvertised website" reports and are like this (some editing done to obscure identities):

I have a similiar report in my inbox right now about a different URL.

They are getting the messages because abuse.net lists them as a contact:

Look up an address in the abuse.net contact database
postmaster[at]wwwllc.net (for wwwllc.net)
abuse[at]wwwllc.net (for wwwllc.net)
noc[at]wwwllc.net (for wwwllc.net)
abuse[at]charter.net (for wwwllc.net)
abuse[at]chartercom.com (for wwwllc.net)

Postmaster addresses are not generally used. The 2 wwwllc.net addresses are disabled, probably because of bouncing. All that is left are the charter addresses.

Keep in mind, sometimes these generically written replies are not to mean they are not looking into the issue.

IP-whois says that 71.14.172.253 is smack in the middle of Charter's block, no question.

I agree with Mr. Underwood, Charter's reply may not be a denial of responsibility, it may just be confusingly written.

I just sent a reply to the message I received, asking the questions.
