Re: fixing insecure email infrastructure (was: Re: [eweek article] Window of "anonymity" when domain exists, whois not updated yet)
Once upon a time, Steven Champeon <email@example.com> said: > 7) all ISPs MUST act on ANY single abuse report (including being > informed of infected customer machines, which MUST be removed from > the Internet ASAP. No excuses) One problem I have with this one is people do forge reports, and there is no way around that. Also, as long as there are networks that don't enforce source address filtering, port probing complaints cannot be validated (I take them as valid unless proven otherwise, but we have had a few that appear after the fact to be forged and/or spoofed). If you _always_ take someone off-line on a single complaint, you make it easy for someone to get someone else kicked off. -- Chris Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org> Systems and Network Administrator - HiWAAY Internet Services I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
