Find their whois records below (its only the #networks we received abuse from during the last 4 days). Whenever I want to understand what's happening with a given country and spam, I often find the CBL to be terrifically helpful. For example, KZ is currently a top-ten botted country according to the CBL http://cbl.abuseat.org/country.html mentioning 172,239 entries Breaking that down by domain, http://cbl.abuseat.org/domain.html shows: -- 139,032 listings for online.kz -- 13,989 listings for nursat.net -- 9,686 listings for caravan.kz [there may be other kz domains that are also relevant, but at a level that's too low to show up on that by-domain summary] All three of the listed domains have domain whois with POC information for those who may want to reach out (I don't know if those doing so will need to speak Kazakh, or if Russian or English perhaps might be sufficient).
