SimpleFilter Under Attack

September 19th, 2006 · No Comments

It looks as though our SimpleFilter service has come under attack today. We seem to be weathering the storm and delivering email as we normally do.

Noticed that a majority of the attack seems to be coming from an IP owned by Affinity Internet. Considering they are an online marketing service company I wouldn't doubt if they are generating some sort of spam campaign.

I've done a bit of google searching on these guys. What I'm finding is a lot of bogus looking press releases from a number of bogus looking domains and websites/blogs so I've come to the conclusion that they are some sort of spam business (even though they look like a legitimate business). I'll update this post if I'm incorrect but I've done enough investigation at this point to lead me down that road.

I've attempted to contact them by phone but was waiting on hold for too long so I gave up. They can contact me through this post if they like.
