Blog: Trackback Spam

July 2nd, 2004 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Neil and myself have just been hit by some nasty track back spam promoting some illegal adult websites from the IP addresses 200.141.76.227 and 198.26.123.36.

I haven’t found much mention of the 198. IP address on the internet, but the 200.141.76.227 is an open proxy server: therefore, I’ve taken the (reluctant) decision to block all open/anonymiser proxy servers from accessing this blog site (details taken from StayInvisible).

If you want to do the same – a suitable list for sticking into Apache’s .htaccess file is available here: but it may block off ‘good users’ as well as spammers (as with any anti-spam system), but at the moment, I’m willing to take the risk (I hate having to go through the MySQL database by hand, deleting the spam and then rebuilding the blog).

(added: Les of StupidEvilBastard was hit as well by the same spammer)

Hit again by 198.26.120.13. Since 198.26.123.36 and 198.26.120.13 both belong to the same netblock – I’m now blocking all IP address starting 198.25.* and 198.26.*.

Who “owns” those IP addresses and appears to be running insecure machines?

OrgName: The Defense Information Systems Agency
OrgID: DISA
Address: DISA/DSSO/JCLCC
Address: Room BF655A, The Pentagon
City: Washington
StateProv: DC
PostalCode: 20301
Country: US

Yep – I’m getting spammed by The Pentagon!

(added again)
And add 202.73.161.3 , 212.138.47.20, 66.43.173.226, 203.199.85.2 and 12.150.236.154 (thanks Arvind – via Neil’s blog)

(added)
Sheesh! A third lot – this time from 209.26.56.10, 66.192.30.22, 217.207.136.226, 210.240.31.65, 213.13.161.66, 64.3.231.3, and 216.48.4.170 (all now blocked).

AND that’s after changing the URL of the track back cgi script! Looks like these guys actually request the page before they send the TB spam (otherwise they wouldn’t know about my rename).

I’ve just actually run a port scan on 216.48.4.170 and it’s got a WWW server running on port 93 (odd: that’s the Device Control Port), a Microsoft IIS webserver running on port 80, POP3 running (110), DCE and Netbios open to the world (ports 135 and 139), a Microsoft SQL Server (port 1433), a VPN server (port 1723) and finally an Open Socks proxy on port 1080 (which is probably where the abuse came from!).

IP address 210.240.31.65 is in Taiwan and has an FTP server running (port 21), Telnet (port 23), SMTP (port 25), an Apache webserver (port 80), POP3 server (110), and by looks of things a Squid Proxy Server (3128) and Standard HTTP Proxy server (port 8080).

The other IP address in the latest batch are not responding to Pings so are probably offline already. But at least it’s not a new virus or worm going around by looks of things – just abuse of open Proxys 🙁

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    That’s, um, a lot of IP addresses :). I’d probably use some kind of rewrite rule that instead displays a page warning about the use of a proxy as opposed to simply denying all access.
