... and also note that both the spam emitting source and the advertised
web sites are in 126.96.36.199/24.
If anyone wants to examine a sample, here is one chosen randomly
(and indicating that Level3 knows about this spammer since at
least 26 february):
- transmitted by: 188.8.131.52
- advertising : 184.108.40.206
The spammer's servers seems to be in their Los Angeles colocation
facility, so they probably have a lot of bandwidth available.
I refuse to believe that Level3 abuse is unable to assess the
situation because it is very clear. On the other hand, I would
readily believe that Level3 abuse proposed termination, but other
parts of the company did not approve it: because we have already
seen too many similar cases occurring in large backbones.
