Update... got spammed again as I was posting the last story...

Category Blogging


Same content, and at least the same address for the first two parts of the IP address.  I remember the 61.181, but I don't recall if 5.118 matches the address from yesterday.  Regardless...  I'll be blocking this one...

Gravatar Image1 - That's China. A nice fat /16 network to add to your blocks.

That is just block CIDR:61.181.0.0/16 == [61.181.*.*] in Domino config.

You don't know anyone in China do you?

Gravatar Image2 - My security system just nixed a bunch of inbounds coming from 60.28.28.68 coming from the same network. I found your post as a result of a search for 'Huang Zheng from 76 NO, ShiLiLin Street, Hebei district of Tianjin, China'. (I don't know anyone from China either.) Needless to say, they didn't make it inward except for our logs. The person who's name is on the network, 'Huang Zhang' was an intern for Microsoft at one time, if it is the same person. Very interesting.
