Russian/Ukrainian Referer Spam Campaign IPs

Posted February 08, 2018 by shaun

It looks like there's a new referer spam campaign underway, with a fresh batch of hosts to block. This one is predominantly promoting Russian and Ukrainian websites. I first caught wind of it from Dave Horsfall, who in late January mentioned on an anti-spam mailing list that he'd seen pills24h.com in his web access logs. I found that domain in my logs too, made a note to look further, and today I got around to poking at it a little.

Since I don't run WordPress or any common blog software, I was surprised to see referer spam suddenly hitting this site in earnest. Most modern spambots are intelligent enough to only target sites vulnerable to their spam. The мудак behind this campaign isn't so discerning, although he's at least bright enough to use IPs that aren't listed in the Stop Forum Spam blacklist. The abuse originates in snowshoe fashion from space allocated to Ukrainian provider Kyivstar / Golden Telecom (AS15895).
