OK, not really, but I have been looking forward to getting it the last two weeks. Why?
At the Ohio HTCIA spring conference Greg and I sat in on a talk entitled Illicit Distribution Networks: Spam Tactics of Online Criminals by Garth Bruen of Knujon (no-junk spelled backwards). Garth had a fascinating presentation on spam networks and how we should be targeting the web sites and domains selling spam instead the ones sending the spam.
The theory behind this is if we shut down the illicit domains selling spam products, those hiring spammers will make less money and go out of business, thus putting the spammers out of business. Sounds solid to me.
The way Garth's organization, Knujon, works is that it has people send them all the spam they can. Unlike other anti-spam orgs, Knujon is only interested in the spam body not the headers. They parse the body and use it to contact registrars and force the shutdown of illicit spam domains.
Garth gave alot of great statistics such as 90% of all spam domains are set up through just 20 registrars (out of 800+). Brian Krebs recently covered more of this on his blog.
Signing up for an account on their site is easy. There are also alot of plugins to mail programs which can be used to speed up the process. I've been using one for Thunderbird and have probably sent Knujon close to 300 spam a day. I have not received any reports back yet, but once I do I'll post the results.
