Re: Emails to be banned and stop spam

Post by drathbun » Thu Oct 30, 2008 5:39 pm

Here are a couple of charts based on data from one domain that I manage. I have a spam preventative measure in place to stop bots but along the way it logs registration attemps. Among other things I log the email address so I can identify trends like this.

The domain "mail.ru" has been on many spammer lists for a very long time. And true to form it has been the most frequently used domain for spammers (it's the red line in this graph) for many years. The domain "gawab.com" is another well known spammer source. But notice the nice green line that spikes at the end of the graph? That's gmail. I don't know what google changed (or maybe they didn't change anything, maybe a bot writer just figured out how to automatically sign up for a gmail account) but earlier this year gmail became much more popular with spammers. In fact it is by far the #1 domain used by spammers for attempted registrations.

Here's another chart on the same data. This one uses a percentage column to show relative use rather than raw numbers. The light-blueish column that appears first is for mail.ru. The second column (darker red) is gmail. For the first few months of activity gmail barely shows up.

Image

Both charts show monthly numbers from 2007-05 through 2008-10.

If anyone would like to download the XLS with the raw data (which includes more than just the top five domains shown here) I have posted it here.

Dave, Google did change the way people signed up. It used to be invite only. Now that anyone can sign up it took a little while before the spammers started using it. That said, I'm mostly seeing spam from Yahoo and fly-by-night domains like you've talked about.

Here's my list prior to seeing this post. Note that some e-mails may not be fake, but were added to the ban list because they looked highly suspicious. If anyone is willing to point out which ones are legitimate to me so I can take them off the list, I'd really appreciate it.

Keep on sharing! :)
