Rule 3

an example of Rule 3, spammers are stooOOpid…

at 3:24 pm, today, this happened:

180501 stupid crack attempt
180501 stupid crack attempt

at 3:26 pm, today, i blocked 88.99.0.0/16 from accessing my web site.

you may not fit the definition of a spammer, but you are definitely stooOOpid. is it possible that you are a machine? you have not done your owner a favour, you know.

dear OVH

dear OVH,

i have been reporting, and blocking spam from your network for at least 5 years. i have at least 500 different addresses that you have used to hide behind, so that when the spam-reporting gets too extreme, you just start a new, incomprehensible email address… yes, i’m talking about fp01iidryzteec0r2yld@a.o-w-o.info and mkc7d52oxkmej7gwghxj@a.o-w-o.info and 94nhgu6xjcnivuapgan0@m.o-w-o.info and 0og193qe7kalvv4n0key@z.o-w-o.info and EVERY FUCKING thing in between…

through my moderate poking around, i have discovered that most of these addresses are for Florent Demuynck, Stephane LeSimple, Falco Schmutz, Grillion Alexis, Tarik Benammar, Edouard Vanbelle, Benjamin Ficheland, Laurent Allard, and others (some of whom may or may not still be employees of OVH), and/or their boss, Octave Klaba.

today, for the first time, i have actually blocked someone from OVH for trying to login to this blog… YES, MY BLOG has been probed by 158.69.223.8.

this is a warning: if i EVER catch you or any of your minions poking around my web again, i will block you so fast that it’ll make your head spin.

i’m on to you OVH. don’t push me, or you’ll feel my mallet! 😠

spam spammers spamming

i am digging my way out from under an inundation of spam messages which arrived between around 1:00 am and around 4:00 pm yesterday. all told there were around 10,000 messages, but they were arriving in 10 to 12 message batches, about 500 every five minutes or so, and only started to decrease around 3:30.

but, at the same time, i sent two LARTs to the spammer’s upstream provider, yesterday, and today i got confirmation(!) that they had disabled their Luser’s email capabilities. i realise that they may just be blowing me off, and the gap will very quickly be filled with another spammer, but it’s good to know that my mallet is still quick and strong… 😎
