... to get silly with bandwidth it seems.
Three separate incidents today - all on the same network.
Each one a colo (unmanaged) customer on a shared feed 'trying' to hog all
the available outgoung bandwidth.
One identified an open mail relay and shut it down right away.
Next fixed the prob when they returned from Christmas shopping - FFS,
unmanaged means I don't manage it - the onus is on the customer to make
sure someone does. Oh well they were only blocked for an hour or two.
Third is still blocked - awaiting notification from client that they've
fixed the prob - seems unlikely I'll hear anything for a few days really.
Is there some tradition of 'Christmas backup' or some other b/w hogging
activity I am, as yet, unaware of?
Compliments of the season to One & All
Re: Tis the season ...
And lo, William Tasso didst speak in alt.www.webmaster:
Tis the season to get silly with our spam :| Starting this morning our
ISP started giving us over 3% false positives for spam. Called them up
and everyone is off partying, on Friday afternoon no less! The
receptionist had to call one of the techs using her pager.
Hopefully this gets fixed before I go home today because I do not want to
deal with this over the holidays :P
To you and yours!
What, just one? A man is blessed with two hands, you know. ;)
The technical axiom that nothing is impossible sinisterly implies the
pitfall corollary that nothing is ridiculous.
