Spam Outings, Round 8

Sadly, it doesn't look like the comment spam is coming in waves any longer, but rather just a steady stream. If it keeps up, I'll soon turn approval on and limit these updates to once a week. They've already taken away too much from the content, such as it is, of this blog.

So again we have a number of educational institutions:

New Kent County Schools
New Kent County Schools
PO Box 110
New Kent, VA 23124

spammed us on Thursday, 14 January 2010 - 11:50pm via IP

The University of Nottingham
University Park
Nottingham NG7 2RD

spammed us on Friday, 15 January 2010 - 12:15am and 2:16pm via IP

University of Tokyo
2-11-16 Yayoi Bunkyo-ku
Tokyo, 113-8658

spammed us on Friday, 15 January 2010 - 1:17pm via IP

I again feel the need to point out that none of these seem to be differentiated as dorms or dynamic or in any other way associated with student shenanigans. The indication is that they belong to faculty and staff, on machines with access to confidential information, or otherwise represent an entire network that lacks proper security.

And this final spammer we feature not because the IP owner:

Core Internet Telmex Chile
Rinconada el Salto, 202, Huechuraba
-- - Santiago -

spammed us on Friday, 15 January 2010 - 1:16pm via IP

but because of the domain it resolves to: I guess you could say it's a legal fact that, if you've sent them mail, people other than your attorney have had access to it.
