RESOLVED: ESCALATION LISTING: Benchmark Email and iBioTool

Following Benchmark Email’s refusal to terminate the scientific spammer ibiotool.com / biotool.com, Scientific Spam have decided to create an escalation listing a week or two ago.

  • 216.4.238.0/24

is listed because of spam sent by Benchmark Email on behalf of ibiotool.com/biotool.com. The X-campaignid: is 3982832.

As of today,

  • bmsend.com

is also listed on our RHSBL. It is fully expected that this will cause false positives, so if ScientificSpam.net RHSBL users expect to receive mail sent by Benchmark Email, please whitelist accordingly.

The list is live :-)

Prior to October 26, this list has been mostly an academic effort.

ClouDNS statistics show how often any domain for which they provide the services has been queried. On October 26, the number of queries jumped from practically nothing to tens of thousands per day. We welcome our first major user, whoever you are. Please monitor your logs for false positives and get back to us if our listings are affecting anything else but scientific spam attempts to you.
