Market Research Spam

Nov 14, 2008

Anyone else having this annoying spam?

Since we changed domain and added hosting at the end we didn't go for privacy with our information. Now for the last 2 weeks I have received an average of about 7 phone calls asking me to advertise our web design company and if I would like cheaper call plans for my phone to which I reply we don't do web design..

I ask "how did you aquire our information?"

Replies "you don't want to advertise / cheap calls?"

I reply "can you answer me first please?"

there reply "goodbye" or words to that affect.

Now if i'm not mistaken is there some companies selling our whois information as market research?

How To *attract* Spam (research)

Jul 7, 2009

I've been tasked with a project to try and collect as many spam messages per day as possible. We're not an ISP so don't see a lot of email traffic on our own.

I've done some basic things like putting up a handful of public email addresses (honeypots) and registered some new domains, but it's been surprisingly hard to collect *a lot* of spam. We're now seeing 200-300 spam messages per day, but we would like to collect 10k-50k+ per day.

Ideally we want the original, full spam message (headers and all).

- Any ideas or tips on how to do this?

- Are there any public databases out there that expose this type of data?

Domain Research

Feb 13, 2007

Do you know how to find all of the domains hosted on a set of nameservers if I were to give you one of the domains?

For example, if I gave - would you be able to tell me
how many other domains are hosted from that same nameserver, or ip?

I know it's possible, I just don't know how to do it.

Research - Finding A EU Provider

Jan 10, 2009

I'm doing some research into EU data centres and was trying to find a list of good, reliable centres that offer good speeds to, and around, the whole of Europe - especially the UK.

The provider we currently use is LeaseWeb (NL), who have been very good, however, due to their servers being a very specific specification and currently not what we're looking for, we are looking for a good replacement.

I don't think I would like a centre that is located in the UK, whilst it would be better for us, it would not benefit all of our customers - a host somewhere in the middle would do great.

Market For Ultra Premium VPS

May 25, 2008

In your opinion do you believe there is a market for a very high end VPS solution?

Something like:
Equal Share CPU (3.0GHz)
3GB Ram reserved
8GB burst
250GB storage (15K drives)
3000GB bandwidth transfer

The thing that makes this “Ultra Premium” would be the host server resource guarantee.

Host server would be undersold in memory, making the possibility of burst memory availability very high.

Max of 8 shares, no host server would ever run more than 8VMs

Each VM would have an affinity for a particular CPU core, at a 1:1 ratio.

All resources are allocated from the beginning.

Host server spec’s would read something like this
2 x 3.0 5450 Xeon
32GB Fully Buffered memory
6x Seagate 15K 450 SAS drives in RAID5 array.
Gigabit uplink

Market Rate For IP Addresses

Nov 14, 2007

I've been collecting quotes from various colo providers for 1 full cabinet in Virginia. I've been surprised at how much power costs these days, but I also understand power is in short supply.

One quote I got raised a question though. For a Class C (non-portable) IP address space, they want $256/month (so I guess that's $1 per IP). Their other pricing seems in line with the other quotes I have received, but no other place wants to charge for IP addresses like that. Is $256/month for a Class C considered normal market rate?

Does that reflect their costs? Are they paying a price per month upstream for IPs?

Why Is Apache Losing Market Share

Jul 25, 2007

I just looked at netcraft and was surprised to see apache's market share down to 50%. Last time I looked in 2005 it was at 70% and climbing. You can clearly see that Microsoft and Apache are a near perfect reflection of each other.

So why is everyone going to Windows servers now?

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Move Spam To Spam Folder Not Available?

Oct 17, 2013

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
Panel version 11.0.9 Update #59, last updated at Oct 3, 2013 02:06 AM
MailEnable version 5

I see in the plesk documentation that the screen to enable SPAM filtering for an individual there is an option to "Move spam to the Spam folder". I don't see that option so I am wondering if it is only available on some versions of Plesk, or in combination with certain mail servers. How to make that option available?

Spam Bnc.txt?

Nov 17, 2008

One of our customers on a VPS downloaded this file and then ran it perl bnc.txt

I am wondering if its a spammer using the script to send spam.

It seems to be written in Portuguese, I have translated parts of it and it reminds of of the typical spam subjects you find now-a-days.

So Much Spam

Aug 19, 2007

through some accounts on the server and the amount of spam in their mail queue is really frustrating. I had to set admin accounts for each site I run and the spammers have discovered them, so I am looking for a ssh command where I can just easily clean all the spam out. I tried cat /dev/null > /var/mail/"the username" but that didn't work.

Someone on our server is sending spam mails, he does not know about it.

Most spam are sent to, and

I'm getting loads of these Mail delivery failed mails:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

The e-mails come from the system/user account e-mail of the domain (, where DA is Direct Admin.

I think it sent more then 30.000 mails in 2 days.

Also received a complaint from aol.

How can I trace this? What can I do to fix it?

Is it a some crappy written php script?

He said he updated joomla, wiki and smf forum.

Spam Filtering

Jan 5, 2009

I used to have a reseller account and have shifted everything to a dedicated server. I now find that a couple of clients are getting lots of spam when they didn't before.

It seems that the servers used by the reseller account had some level of basic spam filtering installed; my provider suggested I look for a filtering program to install on my server.

There are, of course, dozens of them, so I wondered if anyone has any experience - enough, perhaps, to make a recommendation.

I am facing some major SPAM problems.

I am a web host from the city of Kolkata, India.

Almost 95% of my clients are from my city - others are also known to me. I know many of them face to face - there are very little chances that any of them are SPAMMER.

Still my server IP is blacklisted - several times in last 1 year - I changed my datacenter - but the problem still persists.

Spam Being Sent From Our Server.. But How And From Where

Apr 2, 2009

We're using whm/cpanel and we're always up to date with the latest upgrades (with all our scripts).

2 weeks ago, we receive a notification from SpamCop saying that our server was sending out spam. We verified everything and found nothing. 2 days ago, same story.

We tried looking at our logs and found nothing. Does this mean that there's a security hole somewhere? How can we find out from where the spammer is sending his viagra emails from ? We do not want to be permanently banned because of a spammer.

Spam From Parallels

May 20, 2009

I guess the economy must be hitting them hard. They have resorted to unsolicited commercial email, everyone's favourite.


I hope this finds you well. I am currently attempting to reach out to companies that offer web hosting services and either use, or have used, Parallels Plesk Panel as a part of the service offerings. The goal is to re-introduce Parallels Plesk Panel and hopefully revive any previously established relationships. This includes looking into why the Parallels Plesk Panel business slowed, or stopped completely, within your organization.

We are working very hard to establish a reputable channel within the hosting marketplace. In order to do so we need to look at what is currently working and what is not currently working. The best place to begin this research is with companies that have used us, but now don't really offer our products. With that said, are you available for a phone call to discuss?

My goal is to understand:

* Do you currently offer control panels, if so, is Parallels Plesk Panel a part of your offerings?

* If you are no longer offering (pushing) Parallels Plesk Panel, is there a reason?

* Would you be receptive to some sort of "trial" program to re-introduce you to Parallels Plesk Panel and our Service Provider Partnership Program?

I look forward to your response and hopefully speaking with you soon.

Spam Cannibal / Ptr

Jun 17, 2009

I was running an IP check on

It shows blocked because of this reason:

no reverse DNS, MX host should have rDNS - RFC1912 2.1

Is it actually possible to setup some kind of generic ptr records on IPs, even if they are assigned to dedicated server clients?
