Something must have changed over at MX Toolbox as they have started reporting it to people who are using their services that we list the IPs that are being monitored. The listings in question are of any age, from over two years old to very recent.

Something calling itself “ScienceDomain International Ltd”, apparently of Third Floor, 207 Regent Street, London, W1B 3HH, continues to turn up in spamtraps. They have existed as an UK company twice, but both registrations have been dissolved (Reg. No 07794635 – Dissolved on 14 January 2014; Reg. No 08988029 – Dissolved on 24 November 2015). Nonetheless, they process personal data without having ever registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, which in itself is a criminal act in the United Kingdom.
It’s not often that it occurs to you to list an entire Internet service provider’s network, but we’re there now.
We’ve been on the receiving end of spam from Origene since March 2015. At the time, we listed 188.8.131.52, a few domain names, and thought nothing more of it. We had the occasion to look at their spam a little more closely today. It’s all coming from a /15 (that’s 131,072 IP addresses) assigned to a research facility in China. The spamming domain name is smarttargetonline.net, registered to a person without an organization. Worth looking at a little more.
Our first ever /16 listing goes to IMS Health, Inc. of Collegeville, PA.
We just never got around to blogging about it, but it was one of the first things we listed. We keep seeing more of their stuff, and listing all of it.

As of today,
