We are aware of the “freenodegate” spam going around IRC right now and are working hard to blacklist all IPs associated with the spam. We are also working with Amazon Web Services` (where most of the spam is coming from) abuse team to shut down machines involved with the spam campaign. If you are affected by this ongoing incident please make use of our submissions form with any logs related to the incident and make sure that you are flying with DNSBL.im. 😎
We’ve noticed a lot of the “April Floods Day” spam going around on IRC and have taken measures to blacklist it.
You’ll notice a lot of the IP addresses are in the abusive hosts database (5) but we’ve also added to our socks database (3) many of the proxies being used by the spammers.
The abusive hosts database contains IP addresses from some of our data partners right now. Please let us know if you run into any problems by emailing [email protected].
– DNSBL.im staff
DNSBL.im is currently under development.
Currently we have our Tor blacklist fully operational (Return code 1) and abusive hosts are being populated slowly by our data partners (Return code 5).
We are still working with our main supplier before becoming fully operational.
