 Private Mail Spam Attack

We had a Private Mail Spam attack this morning where about 20 members were mailed a ridiculous spam message looking for money .

I may have to implement some additional security to stop this type of invasion in the future.

Dennis

Unfortunately,when someone like this Lillian1 poster missuses the Tractorpoint Private Mail system, this can lead to mail delivery problems for the Tractorpoint site. That is because for the recipient the most logical thing is to mark this as a SPAM email. Enterprising SPAMMERS are getting more creative and are attempting to subvert legitimate sites like Tractorpoint by cloaking their activities within valid businesses like Tractorpoint. The SPAMMER uses my site and my mail domain jplan to send the email from my server as a valid Tractorpoint member. They even automate the process. That is why you often see the script letters and number images on so many sites so you cannot spoof being a person. Because I am the company that sent the email the risk to me is that my mail server gets ID'd as a SPAM server.

The Tractorpoint Private Message members received from tractorpoint@jplan.com was sent from the jplan.com site as a valid Private Message from a new Tractorpoint member (now deleted by me). The content was crap because the new member was unethical, if you see it is from the jplan domain it is from the Tractorpoint mail server and is a valid email though the content could be bogus. Please delete the message and alert me if you have received such a message so that I can take action. Please don't if at all possible makr it as spam. Marking one message as spam should not be a problem as long as you continue to receive Tractorpoint alerts. If you stop receiving alerts and other Tractorpoint mail let me know and I can work on getting the SPAM block removed. Unfortunately mail server spam blocks are across the board, that is if jplan gets blocked by AOL then all AOL accounts won't get email.

So anyone who receives one of these Tractorpoint Private messages please just delete it and let me handle it on my end. Do not report it as SPAM.

If you are afraid that new people will join Tractorpoint and send you SPAM messages just turn off the Private Message feature in your profile instead. Meanwhile I will work on a solution.

Appreciate your patience and cooperation.

Dennis

Sorry Dennis, I thought I was doing the right thing. Maybe it's time for me to step aside, the computer world is just too much for me I guess. Frank.

No problem Frank, it is understandably confusing as to what the correct thing to do is. That is why I elaborated on the issue.

Isn't funny how there is always some clown ( the character that prostituted our private mail system) that just wants to muck things up for all of us. I have been spending so much time on this site to make it more useful and to grow the membership, then some idiot comes along....%^%#$($^(%^%&^@$%^*((*&(*& and sends out some hopeless moronic message to lots of our members!

Keep up the good stuff Frank and I want you to keep plugging away at that computer for a long time to come Smile

Dennis

Frank, you just have to remember the three constants in life! Change, taxes and death! If you change fast enough the tax man might not find you, and after death? Let the family sort it out! Oh well, chances are if you never made a mistake, you've never done anything! I know thats not you! Merry Xmas!

Dennis,
I was going to tell you the anti spam software my IP uses HAPPENED to catch if for me but could not find it. They use "Barracuda" and it does help. Sure does not catch all of them.
Your question on why people do such, there has alwasy been those who do such for many different reason. I think it is called vandalism. They often think what they are doing is smart of funny or getting even. They do not realize how much hurt they are inflecting and most on themself. If they would take that engery and money and put it to something profitable they would be ...profitable. A conecpt most do not understand.

Sorry again Dennis for what I caused. No Art, it's a long way from my first mistake. I hope to live long enough to make lots more of them, but hopefully not ones that cause others lots of greif. I guess I'm one who sees a button and just can't wait to push it. Frank.
