Under Spam Attack
We are currently experiencing very high loads on the server as we are being spammed by what looks like a Korean consortium... I will slowly but surely be able to block them but it could take a short while...
The Spambot continue to pound our systems - I am slowly getting to grips with who it is and will have it sorted before too long...
The Spambot continue to pound our systems. Just running a few tracking scripts - not too long now...
The Spambot continue to pound our systems less and less :-) So far identified 4000 machines involved in this spam attack - slowly getting them all banned from ALL of my systems!
This does mean that if you are unfortunate enough to have had your machine subverted by this spambot then I'm afraid you will probably not be able to even read this ;-)
Given up counting the number of machines trying to splat the server - instead I have set up an outomated script that will simply ban each new address that they try to send spam from. Simple but effective solution - eventually they should see the light...
Splat - Splat - Splat - like flies against a wind-shield... They don't know how to give up... At least all our mail should now be catching up and getting through!
No more splats! Looks like their spam engine finally gave up the ghost and realised that I had banned it from trying the servers... Took almost 4 hours for the splat to stop, but I think it's safe to go out and clean the wind-shield now :-P
