When Do Spammers Sleep?

Filed under: Anti-spam, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 9:41 am CommentsComments (1) 

A few days ago someone commented on my blog concerning the timing of spam. When does it happen? During the day? the night? on weekends? So I started playing with numbers.

I like playing with numbers, in case you had not figured that out by now. :-)


China is Moving Up

Filed under: Anti-spam, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 8:49 am Comments Off 

For a very long time the #1 country top level domain (TLD) source for spammer registrations has been Russia. One of the primary offenders is mail.ru as I’m sure many of you are aware. For a while it seemed that .org addresses were the ones being abused, and then it was .info. Now it seems that China (.cn) is the new TLD of choice for spammers.
