Germany's most incompetent comment spammer

by Volker Weber


Here we go again. Cheap labor. Manually spamming from a known IP address through Deutsche Telekom. Let's take a closer look:

Host ( appears to be up ... good.
Interesting ports on (
135/tcp open msrpc
1025/tcp open NFS-or-IIS
5000/tcp open UPnP
Running: Microsoft Windows NT/2K/XP
OS details: Microsoft Windows 2000 SP3

Windows 2000 SP3, port 135 open, and not firewalled? Hmm. Port 5000, Universal Plug and Play? Nice shot. ;-)


Got the same spam. Should go to Cologne and trace the guy down.

"Cheap labor" - reminds me of Topware that had all German phonebooks transcribed in China back in 1995(?). Wonder how long it takes till voice-over-IP-spam will become an issue.
