Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-6585) Influx of mailing list spam (spoofed?) from subscriber accounts
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 10:13:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6585?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13729356#comment-13729356

#asfinfra IRC Bot commented on INFRA-6585:
------------------------------------------

<danielsh> FWIW (a) when a mail is rejected due to being on -deny, the user is notified
of that; (b) just unsubscribing them from -allow is another option.

> I'm not sure what if anything can be done about this, but i wanted to report this somewhere
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.
