Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-6585) Influx of mailing list spam (spoofed?) from subscriber accounts
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2013 16:18:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6585?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13716541#comment-13716541

Hoss Man commented on INFRA-6585:
---------------------------------


The best course of action so far suggested is to have moderators forcibly unsubscribe individual
addresses that are used to send spam form the lists that recieve them, but this seems less
then ideal since...

 * it's punishing legitimate users for spammer action taken in their name
 * it has to be handled on a per user, per list basis -- i can unsubscribe an 
   address from most of the @lucene mailing lists, but that doesn't help
   the @hadoop lists getting the same spam from the same address

and get a trackable URL with the details.
> In the last ~48 hours, we've seen a large spike in the amount of SPAM mail making it
into lucene mailing lists which is making it arround the moderation queues because the identified
"sender" is in fact a subscribed user....

> ...based purely on the CC list of these spam messages, and the results on other lists
that show up from these few senders, it looks like the problem is not specific just to lucene
lists, and is probably affecting other projects at a larger scale.
> If anyone in INFRA has specific suggestions for how to deal with this influx of "subscribed
user spam", either on hollisticly in the apache server/ezmlm configs, or via moderater action,
please speak up.
