ESCALATION LISTING: 117.20.26.0/23 (Bentham)

Over the course of our existence we’ve received spam from Bentham from multiple IP addresses in this Pakistani network. The [email protected] address indicated in the APNIC WHOIS for the operator is bouncing. Bentham is spamming, and expanding its presence.

Accordingly, we’ve listed 117.20.26.0/23 in its entirety on our list today, August 23, 2014.

We’ve also let tw1.com (the provider) know about this, for whatever good it might do. We’ve also informed APNIC of the fact the handle TM701-AP (the abuse at tw1.com address) is invalid.

It is possible that Transworld (Pvt) ltd. will merely assign more IP addresses outside 117.20.26.0/23 to Bentham Science Publishers. We have no qualms about listing 117.20.16.0/20 in its entirety should that become necessary. The lack of a response to the notice, more spam from Bentham, and more spam from Bentham from addresses in the parent network but outside 117.20.26.0/23 will all contribute to the likelihood of that happening.
