Art-Market, ArtPrice, Servergroup, Groupe Serveur etc. spamhaus

So a few months ago, I setup a cookie-producing mailto honeypot page at foojlist.php.

Well, I just got the first bite — and it’s a live one. It’s our old friends at artprice.com. They’re a French spamhaus, operating from Saint-Romain-au-Mont-d’Or, France, and reports claim that it’s all the work of one guy — Thierry Ehrmann.

There’s lots of reports in USENET, and here’s their SBL listing, noting ‘extremely intense french spam source.’

This posting to NANAE notes that Colt France are not responding to complaints about them, either — but notes that ‘in France collecting e-mail addresses with the intention to send commercial mails without permission of the holders can be punished by law (article 226-18 of the Code Pe’nal – up to 5 years of prison or 300.000 euro)’. Interesting!

Full details of the spam, and the access_log entries from their web-scraper’s accesses, are attached.

Here’s the spam:

And, after decoding the address it was sent to, here’s the access_log entries the address was scraped with:

194.242.43.13 - - [26/Sep/2003:21:09:34 +0100] ''GET /foojlist.php HTTP/1.0'' 200 4066 ''-'' ''Art-Online.com 0.9(Beta)''

That’s one line from their scraping run, during which they scraped every single page on spamassassin.taint.org, including tar and zip archives, CGI scripts, everything — making 534 requests between 21:07:31 and 21:16:49.
