I woke up this morning, and I noticed I had over 50 attempts for relaying through my mail server (mostly from Asian net ranges). I feel strongly that this has gotten out of control, and I wish I could report the individual IPs to their corresponding ISPs, knowing they would take the appropiate actions. As we all know, ISPs are very, very lazy when it comes to customer abuse. Bellsouth, for instance, still uses a real-time blacklist that, as the author says, should no longer be used, and encourages people to contact their respective ISPs and alert them that the blacklist is no longer maintained. To add more grunts and groans, I checked my web server logs and noticed a ton of IIS exploit attempts (isn't Code Red over?). This, I believe, is more serious than spam, and actions should definitely be taken against this garbage; however, ISPs are lazy. The only protective measure I've been able to implement is filtering out the netranges (three Class A's and a few B's and C's - all Asian).
