Jotka Posted September 27, 2007 Share Posted September 27, 2007 Hi, it seems to me that SpamCop Reporting does not find proper contact addresses for all Chinese IPs. Here is an example: I had a spam with this link in its body: "http://ggaciton.com/". SpamCop's analysis then found: ---- BEGIN CITED ---- Tracking link: http://ggaciton.com/ [report history] Resolves to 184.108.40.206 "whois 220.127.116.11[at]whois.apnic.net" (Getting contact from whois.apnic.net mirror) Display data: Abuse address in 'remarks' field: spam[at]apnic.net. Abuse address in 'remarks' field: abuse[at]apnic.net. Backup contact notify = dbmon[at]apnic.net whois.apnic.net found abuse contacts for 18.104.22.168 = abuse[at]apnic.net., spam[at]apnic.net. whois: 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199 = abuse[at]apnic.net., spam[at]apnic.net. Routing details for 188.8.131.52 I refuse to bother abuse[at]apnic.net.. Using abuse#apnic.net.[at]devnull.spamcop.net for statistical tracking. I refuse to bother spam[at]apnic.net.. Using spam#apnic.net.[at]devnull.spamcop.net for statistical tracking. Using last resort contacts abuse#apnic.net.[at]devnull.spamcop.net spam#apnic.net.[at]devnull.spamcop.net ---- END CITED ---- With this result no administrator of the hosting site is informed ... though there IS a contact address! An APNIC query for that IP address returns some APNIC mail contacts for 124/8 (which - I agree - should not be bothered), but also an e-mail address for the admin-c/tech-c of 124.42.96/19: chenbin[at]sinnet.com.cn. I think that addresses like this should also be used for complaints, so I suggest to improve SpamCop accordingly. Thanks and kind regards Jotka PS: I hope that my post is okay in this forum. I am new to it, and could not find any posts about this topic, neither in this nor in other formus. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
