    Feels like the "unexpected hello" contact adding spammers are suddenly back to about 2016 levels this last week. Or did I break some firewall config with an update? Anyone else getting a fresh wave?

    not yet mike

    thanks for the update

    I should pay attention to which JID they're coming in on. My oldest one used to get hit pretty often by the random adds by strangers. I think it's been active for about 16 years now so it's on every spammer's list. 😁

    they're on many diffferentt serverss mike

    excuse typos, I'm on a phone with a glitchy screen

  7. mike

    Ellenor Bjornsd.: I'm aware of that, I'm wondering if they're all sending TO the same old account or hitting other ones. I usually have at least 3 JIDs online at any time.

  8. Ellenor Bjornsd.

    i have been getting many on my root acct

    What's the subject of the spam?

  10. MattJ

    They just send a greeting, no ad, unless you respond

  11. MattJ

    As well as evading some filters, this allows them to confirm a JID is "active" - they can charge more for lists of confirmed active JIDs

  13. Ellenor Bjornsd.

    Connection from xmpp-dns.mdosch.de to trung.fun failed ! Cert hash: (No certificate) Error:

    I don't think xmpp-dns.mdosch.de is a real Server

  17. Martin

    It's not.

  18. Trung

    it's on the internet. of course it's real

  19. Martin

    There is no xmpp server xmpp-dns.mdosch.de. Xmpp-dns just has to set a server name as some servers don't allow s2s otherwise.

  20. Trung

    ok <3
