Spammers take revenge – "Joe jobs" against joewein.de

We don't send spam, we fight spam. Obviously this does't make us very popular with spammers whose websites get listed on our spam domain list. As a result, one or more spammers have done a total of four "Joe jobs" on us so far. That is, a spam run with a message using a fake sender address and or content "advertising" the "Joe job" victim, making it look like an innocent person was the originator of the mail. The intention is to cause trouble for that person (more info about "Joe Jobs" here).

The most recent batch went out on 2005-07-23 and (as of 2005-07-28) seems to be continuing. The spam was sent using a bulk email software called DMS ("Direct Mail Sender"), written by Alexey Panov who ranks in the top ten of the Spamhaus ROKSO list.

Here is an example of this spam:

Below are some message headers from spam forwarded to us, which list the infected hosts from which the spam was sent.

You can see that some are addressed to address a1aaa1azzzz1zaaaaa@domain, an address that is unlikely to exist on those mailservers. These mails will be delivered to the "catch all" account on the server, if enabled. This is normally read by the administrator of the host. It is as if the spammer was specifically trying to get administrators upset about our website, maybe because he thought they would know how to contact the abuse handling department of our webhoster. Normal users, if they send any complaints at all, tend to either write directly to a contact address listed the advertised website or they tend to complain to the abuse department for the sender address (which is fake in this case). Therefore I think the spammer was trying to get our website suspended. The more likely outcome however is that the spam gang will lose many of the DMS proxies via which the spam was sent, as the admins report the DMS proxies to the abuse departments in charge of the abused hosts.

A number of other anti-spam sites or personal sites of anti-spam activists were targetted by Joe jobs during the last couple of months. These include:

Joe job on 2004-02-27
The previous joe job went out on 27 February 2004. It was sent to more than 15,000 email addresses, as we received more than 3000 bounces and more than 12,000 people opened the email, acording to the traffic statistics from our website logs.

Previous emails were sent by (as yet) unknown person(s) to thousands of recipients on 16 December 2003 at 07:55 UTC, trying to make us look like spammers. Another batch, with a different message body and a different sender was sent on 19 December 2003. Both a provider in Argentina and in Hong Kong were used for the first spam. The second batch was sent via Comcast, a provider in the USA. This last mail used as a fake sender address the mail abuse handler of the company that hosts our website. Therefore all error messages for undeliverable spam ended up going to our web hoster. If I really was a spammer I'd have to be pretty stupid to dump all spam bounces onto my own webhoster...

The bulk mailer employed in all these spams is quite rare - in fact, we only have five previous specimens of it in our 100,000-odd item spam archive, all five sent in November or December of 2003. We suspect that the sender of the "Joe job" and the sender of one or more of these these spam mails is the same person. If you have received any spams using this bulk emailer, send us a copy!

A Google search found the same IP address already listed for spamming on a Japanese website on February 26, 2004 i.e. the day before the Joe job against us was sent:
http://www.src.co.jp/spam/2004/02/GreyE20040226.txt

upenn.edu is listed there for spam from this address:
dhcp0062.hse.resnet.group.upenn.edu [165.123.166.142]

The most recent Joe Job tried to display 16 pictures from our website in order to drive up our web hosting bill. We responded by moving those pictures and replacing one of the images with a file that includes the following message:
