Spam Outings, Round 11

Compromised educational institutions have become both a staple and tiresome:

University of Hawaii Community College System
UH Computing Center 2565 The Mall
Honolulu, HI 96822

And color me surprised that it took this long, but now we have some religious institutions who can't shepherd their servers. They'll claim to save your soul, but your money and identity are probably in the hands of thieves:

TMNET IP Administrators
TM Annexe 1,
Jalan Pantai Baru,
50672 Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia

spammed us on Tuesday, 16 February 2010 - 2:50pm via IP 219.95.108.38

That's a generic IP owner, but it resolves to smtp.ibfim.com, or the mail server for the Islamic Banking and Finance Institute. I again sit amazed that botnets take over these sorts of critical servers, yet squander their ripe position by using them to openly spam low-grade blogs with low-grade drug links.

Family Stations Inc.
290 Hegenberger Road
OAKLAND, CA 94621

spammed us on Wednesday, 17 February 2010 - 6:05am via IP 69.25.105.76

For your reference, that resolves to fsiinternet.familyradio.org. Family Radio bills itself as "A Worldwide Christian Ministry". And because nothing says a happy and loving Christian family like death threats, they've set aside 21 May 2011 as the end of the world.
