Microsoft sues over a spammers email list

Microsoft has stopped a man from selling lists of email addresses which were being used for spam. A court has granted a summary judgment against Paul Martin McDonald, stopping him from selling the lists.

Microsoft owns and runs Hotmail, a free, web based email service. It sought a summary judgment from the English courts to stop McDonald from operating his Bizads business, which offered for sale lists of email addresses of people which were used as the basis of spam by those who purchased the lists.

Microsoft said that the activity breached the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations. It argued that because a high proportion of the people receiving the emails complained about them it was suffering loss and damage to the goodwill it had as operators of Hotmail.

Proxy Referrer spam

For those that want to use a proxy server to hide their true identity, Spacequad really doesn't care. However, if you are using it to hide your trail to try and spam our network, think again, it wont work. Your IP will be banned for fraudulent activities. We will show you several prime examples why it wont work and why you should avoid using proxy servers.

Nigerians are at it again

The Nigerians are at it again and don't seem to get the hint. It seems that they are hell bent on trying to get other peoples money that don't belong to them. I'm sure you've seen the emails in all differnt flavors. This one, is no different except I caught them in action and closed them down. Atleast from this end. If I could only see the looks on their faces as their ISP shuts off their connection to the world around them. Hehehehe. Anyways, look in the forums under People that obtain EMail accounts by fraud to see the entire transcripts of what happened.

Unacceptable burnt cookies

Ever wonder why you keep getting hackers and spammers to your site and can't quite figure out why they are visiting?  There is actually two parts to this.  First of all, they want to post their vial filth on your site to help promote a site that they have an affiliation with.  Whether they own that site or not, they will stop at nothing short of loosing their own internet access to post on your site.  Secondly, what they are doing is trying to increase their search engine ranks.  A story I recently posted on earlier today.  Lets take a closer look now at how they keep coming back and how you can figure out a way to keep them away.

Referral Spam from Open Proxies

What is referral Spam you ask? Its a means to try and increase the traffic to who ever is visiting your site. What I mean to say is that when a spammer visits, they go thru an open proxie to hide their true source IP and host name. What this does is to increase their search engine ranks when the search engines like Google, AltaVista, MSNSearch, etc etc come visiting your site to spider it for new content. Along the way they get new links for outside links to other sites.

Posting articles and comments

Posting articles and Comments on this site are not difficult to do. However, it seems that script kiddies are hell bent on trying to submit their advertising for what ever reasons. Let me assure you that those articles and comments are not being posted and that no matter how much they try to keep submitting their spam, its not getting thru. Why? You ask. Simple. You have to register/login to your account. Not vary hard to do. The only thing you script kiddies are doing, is wasting your time, let alone the rest of the blogger communities out there. Since CAPTCHA was installed, we have not had a single one posting from a SPAMMER.

Important ICANN Notice Regarding Your Domain Name(s)

It's that time of year again. ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) annually requires that all accredited registrars (like Go Daddy(R)) ask their domain administrators/registrants to review domain name contact data, and make any changes necessary to ensure accuracy.

To review/update your contact data, simply:
+ Go to <a href="http://www.godaddy.com/?isc=ICANN06a">www.godaddy.com/?isc=ICANN06a</a>; or another registar like <a href="http://www.verisign.com">www.verisign.com</a>;
+ Click on the &quot;ICANN Domain Confirmation&quot; icon at the top of the page if they have one
+ You will be taken to a landing page and asked to enter your Domain Information Key: The one that was sent by your registar in an email they have listed on file.
+ Enter your key and click &quot;Go.&quot;

Next, simply review the contact information for each domain name. To make a correction, log in to &quot;My Account&quot; with your customer number or log in name and password. Click &quot;Manage Domains&quot; and then &quot;Contacts.&quot; If you find that your domain contact data is accurate, there's no need to take action.

If, however, your domain contact information is inaccurate, you must correct it. (Under ICANN rules and the terms of your registration agreement, providing false contact information can be grounds for domain name cancellation.) To review the ICANN policy, visit: <a href="http://www.icann.org/whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm">http://www.icann.org/whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm</a>;

People, if we all take notice of this and keep records updated, then spammers will have but no choice but to either keep their records updated or run the risk of getting shut down by law by order of ICANN. Pretty neat of them eh?
