Feigning normality since 1973
Outing Spammers #2
Filed in: Spam.
Subject: Mr 126.96.36.199 (porsche.elinuxservers.com), using the User agent "Snoopy v1.0", hitting ~5 times a day with trackback attempts. Now blocked in .htaccess.
Likely identity: using Network Solutions, I checked some of the domains he'd been spamming. They all had the following registration info:
Googling turned up no further information, and unfortunately there's not enough there to make a fake-or-not decision. Like Net::TrackBack, Snoopy v1.0 looks to be legitimate software twisted for evil use.
I took the liberty of emailing elinuxserver.com's admin address, but haven't had a response yet...
