New Blog Spam?

Anyone else getting posts from sequencial (sometimes) IPs, to old posts with just a line of text saying “You are invited to check out some helpful info in the field of… Thanks!!!”? No URL to ban, and all nice generic words you can’t ban through blacklist 🙁 A search for the text on Feedster came

Spammacular Magic

Sometimes spam makes it’s way through my filters (though very rarely since I used training to exhaustion with my BogoFilter setup), and sometimes I read it just to see what the latest tricks are.

Kill the Spammers

Some bastard spammer used a @ufies.org email address to send spam advertising anti-spam software. Now all email to that account is routed to my “mailer-bounces” mailbox, which is 25 megs in size and almost 7000 messages strong. Weee. Ask me why I love commercialism again? Oh right, “progress” :-P~ I also got an email last

A man, some spam, a plan…. Iran

It started out as a discussion of the spam that was hitting the gentoo-dev list, and I was told about bogofilter, a Bayesian spam filter that use word count stats and analysis to filter spam. Up until now I’ve been using spam assassin and it’s been working pretty well. I just purged my spam folder
