Weekly spam summary on September 3rd, 2005
Overall connections are down slightly from last week: 200,000 SMTP connections from 33,800 different IP addresses. The frontend's highwater mark for simultaneous connections hit 24 this time around.
Top 10 kernel level SMTP rejections:
Host/Mask Packets Bytes 22.214.171.124 13125 630K 126.96.36.199 10706 488K 188.8.131.52/24 9508 497K 184.108.40.206/12 6346 311K 220.127.116.11 5675 272K 18.104.22.168 5325 256K 22.214.171.124 5232 251K 126.96.36.199/24 4766 220K 188.8.131.52/10 4318 226K 184.108.40.206 4317 213K
Both 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 reappear from last week, but all the other hosts are new. 22.214.171.124/24 is the mail servers of Netvigator, who have now earned themselves an IP level block because I got tired of them banging on our SMTP port.
