  • Can I flag this?

    This signature is brought to you by the NSA. Spying on the entire world since 1952!

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    Why would you?

  • I don't think it's very professional of you to be making these kinds of topics, Randy. Especially when you're going to throw out vague terms like "abuser" and "spam".

  • It would be helpful if you'd provide some proof, such as blacklist listings/etc.

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    Sure. I will post the blacklisting proof

    @Randy said: Why would you?

    From your TOS

    ... WE MAY ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REPORT TO THE AUTHORITIES OF YOUR ACTIONS.

    This forum does not count as the "authorities". It's a nice gesture that you wanted to warn hosts, but it's an empty gesture as we only have one side of the story and a pretty half ass story at best.

    To reiterate, this type of information shouldn't be shared in public. I'm pretty sure most hosts have a clause in their TOS where they state that they won't share details with 3rd parties.

  • Yet i am sure most hosts do share the details with third parties - the payment processor and MaxMind :)

    As he is part of a let member, it would be nice to warn people

  • @rds100 said: Yet i am sure most hosts do share the details with third parties - the payment processor and MaxMind :)

    You know what I meant :)

  • How about explaining what he did? You say "spam", but that could mean any number of things. To some people, it could mean anyone who sends out mass emails. To others, it's people sending out emails that aren't compliant with the CAN-SPAM Act. To yet others, it could mean that the email list isn't double-opt-in...

    So Randy, this Giang fellow is sending out spam in a can or is it more with toast and cheese?

    I absolutely detest SPAM.

    Poor Randy, No matter what he does, He is bad. HAHA. But really Randy, Grow up buddy. All of your posts and comment are actually going to haunt you and will hurt your reputation if you plan to run TheHostingSquad for more than 1 year. If the person in question violated your TOS, Share the full story. But TBH, For something as small as this, a forum post is not required. My 2c.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    This IP is assigned to my $1 VPS I ordered, lol. Just reinstall Windows and installed Chrome on it, do a single SpeedTest.net and that all.

    And I didn't recive any notice from him, yet.

    You did that because I found out your Windows Server template was not clean?

    I had this happen on a fresh Windows 2003 SP2 box I installed (no further updates), drove home, saw tons of AOL/Hotmail alerts. After that I never left the datacentre without a full Windows update and always plug a Windows box with NAT-ed IP first.

    @Randy You actually warned everyone at LET, to watch out from trying any services from YOU. If you really want to bet your reputation, allow any member of this forum to try to reinstall your available template to prove allegation that your template is not clean.

    i support @giang in this. You have already tripped the wire few many times.

    Yes. i am aware of that. shall get it fixed soon..

    @Kenshin said: Did you clear this with the customer? It could be an honest compromise case. chances of that is low, unless he never did changed the root password, unless he shared the details of the vps it would not been hacked.

    The os is clean, if its not clean, all of my users would have been hacked already.

  • @giang said: He removed this template already

    If he provided a bad template which might have caused this issue, he should fire the techguy or himself, not the client.

    You cant say that. i for one run updates and secure ports anytime i reinstall. That doesnt always mean the template was safe to run as it was.

    Posting the IP of your solusvm admin is probably not a smart move.. you should remove thehostingsquad.com/abuse3.png

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    if they type my solusvm control panel url it shows the IP Address. so its in public already

    @Randy, would you mind request more detail from your provider? For example: full email header, email source...

    Gets out Dorittos and sour cream dip.

    What? It was left over from work..

  • @Randy said: The os is clean, if its not clean, all of my users would have been hacked a;ready.

    Rubbish. As per my example, I installed a fresh Windows 2003 SP2 from CD and put it online, it got compromised within a drive home to send spam, and this is just once of the tens of Windows 2003 I installed that year. This isn't a majority number game, a single case is sufficient to prove there's a problem.

    A customer has a paying relation with you, unless you have undeniable proof that he's the spammer (eg. sample spam with his website), the fact that he is a CUSTOMER means you should be inclined to work with him first, not defame him publicly the first chance you get.

    Furthermore real spammers generally do not interact publicly. They'll do their task quietly, provide fake information and pay with fraudulent funds. Those that do call themselves legal "email marketing companies". The bulk of spam is actually sent from compromised servers/email accounts.

    Do the community a favour, just shut up and keep to your offer thread. I think a number of us are feeling irritating by your insensitive postings all over the place, especially in other people's offer threads. Doesn't matter if you're joking or not, if you don't have anything better to say, zip it.

    Did you actually READ the notice?

    The IP address was added as an A record for rx___fast.ru. There's no evidence of spam in there. Basically you can get screwed over by SpamHaus simply by having these people add your IP address to any of their domains.

    Does @giang, a public figure in LET with a VPS review site, really look like a spammer to you?

    @Randy congrats on shooting yourself in the foot...

    Did you read the Spamhaus report? The mentioned IP was only listed once as an A record... I could easily point a DNS A record at any IP I want. I would take that report from Spamhaus to mean that someone may have hacked the clients VPS and maybe I should warn them or check up on them.

    If we find the abuse is re-activated your server may be terminated.
