SPAM RATS

SpamRATS Lists

RAT-Dyna

RATS-Dyna - RATS-Dyna is a collection of IP Addresses that have been found sending an abusive amount of connections or trying too many invalid users at ISP and Telco's mail servers. They are also known to conform to a naming convention that is indicative of a home connection or dynamic address space.

RAT-NoPtr

RATS-NoPtr - RATS-NoPtr is a collection of IP Addresses that have been found sending an abusive amount of connections or trying too many invalid users at ISP and Telco's mail servers. They are also known to have no reverse DNS, a technique often used by bots and spammers. Email servers should always have reverse DNS entries.

RAT-Spam

RATS-Spam - This is a list of IP Addresses that do not conform to more commonly known threats. This is usually because of compromised servers, hosts, or open relays. However, since there is little accompanying data this list could have false-positives, so we suggest that it only is used if you support a more aggressive stance.

RAT-Auth

RATS-Auth - RATS-AUTH is a collection of IP Addresses that have been detected as being the source of a trojan/bot attack specifically used to try and guess passwords, or similar technique by attempting to just 'authenticate' without really sending email. We suggest that it be used to protect your servers from these types of attacks, which can also contribute to large loads.
