[nycbug-talk] Spam probes
Tue Nov 9 11:30:52 EST 2004
Yesterday started to look at Pyzor (http//pyzor.sourceforge.net).
Basically it depends on spams been sent to a spam probe account and then
when the same spams go to real accounts they are discarded.
Anyone got any good/quick ways to get into spammers lists? :-)
I am thinking posting to some of the "test" newsgrops with my spamprobe
This is not my only spam detection mechanism, but wondering how this would
work. Currently using popfile and a challenge response service.
I like most the challenge response system (using http://mailblocks.com),
but even after upgrading to the 100MB rate sometimes I get close to the
limit (with only 8 days worth of spam). The killer are the "catch all"
addresses for several domains. Those get the most spam.
