Re: SPAM and eBGP4 real-time map ?

   I commented on something that Paul said on bind-workers, and as
   usual with elm, group-reply goes also to the sender.

   I am curious as to what Paul means with "eBGP4" feed, I must see
   his pages...

That "feed" is a mailing list, when a large scale spammer is found
Paul Vixie sends PGP signed BGP4 routing rules which those on the list
add to their BGP4 router configurations, these rules block out any
packets sent from the site where the spammer is found to originate
from.  This has been shown to be truly effective and piss spammers off
especially since many people using that list run the primary backbones
in the US, most of the time this cuts the spammers life lines off
