Chinese Spammers and Hackers – beware!
Yesterday I had a really bad day. After several months I did re-open the feedback form of the Silent Gardens website. I had to close it earlier this year because of heavy spam abuse and hacker attacks.
Most of the spammers come from mainland China. There one can do nearly nothing else than blocking the buggers. But one is a French citizen. This one will have a bad time in the near future. I just informed his Internet Service Provider (ISP). The Chinese do not interest me. Only 0.12% of our visitors come from mainland China, so I simply lock access for some hundred thousands of PCs in PRoC.
For those who know how to block:
188.8.131.52 China United Network Communications Corporation Limited 184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168 CHINANET FUJIAN PROVINCE NETWORK 22.214.171.124 – 126.96.36.199
188.8.131.52 CHINANET FUJIAN PROVINCE NETWORK 184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11
The French spammer sits here:
It’s really nasty this spam mail. But the worst is, that clever hackers can use your e-mail address to spam other visitors of your website. Why the Chinese are the most active ones is really strange. Also the content of their spam is strange. A sample:

The ?tid=165 at the end of the link makes me think that this is an affiliate program. The spammer might earn some cents per click. Poor guy! And of course, I do not publish the whole link
