    more and more spam

  2. Ge0rG

    All I get are presence subscriptions.

  4. 0xAFFE

    included with a nifty spam message :(

  5. 0xAFFE

    I wonder if there is a ROI on these spam stuff?

  6. Ge0rG

    0xAFFE: there is, otherwise they wouldn't do it

  7. Zash

    What were the prices? How much does it cost to write some bots?

  8. Ge0rG

    Zash: how much does it cost to collect 100k JIDs?

    Google Translate seems to be very good at russion -> german, at least it is readable

  11. mrDoctorWho

    it says that they update their database 24 hours a day

  12. mrDoctorWho

    I wonder when they get me in their database

  13. Martin

    Seems like you must post your jid into a board they are monitoring. I wonder when they start harvesting the complete web instead of a few special sites

  14. Ge0rG

    Martin: they are. And they abuse email addresses as JIDs, and everything that resembles one.

  15. mrDoctorWho

    nope. I have my jid somewhere on wikipedia and still, I got no spams

  16. mrDoctorWho

    it seems they don't want me to have fun :/

  17. Maranda

    They harvest google too

  18. Maranda

    They just query for the host part of the server

  19. Maranda

    Easier than monitoring specific boards

  20. Ge0rG

    Maranda: how do you know? :P

  21. Maranda

    Ge0rG an educated guess 😉

  22. Maranda

    Beside that casually querying "lightwitch.org" on google gets out almost the full list of jids getting spim on my server Ge0rG

  23. Ge0rG

    Maranda: ah, okay

  24. Maranda

    Ge0rG otherwise direct crawling

  25. Maranda

    When you see a crawler in logs not respecting robots.txt you can guess with prejudice what is it doing, because you would be right 9/10 times.

  26. Maranda

    -version darkdna.net

  27. Bunneh

  29. Maranda

  32. Maranda

    also a spammy server too apparently.

  33. nuron

    Hmm I didn't notice spam... How do you detect?

  34. Maranda

    I look for patterns in the clouds in the sky or read logs, or both.

  35. nuron

    > I look for patterns in the clouds in the sky Sounds good !!

  37. Maranda
