Sigh…

A very active spammer decided to use a phony return address on munitions.com yesterday. The rejection messages from spam filters (“gosh, thanks, assholes”) were coming in in batches of around a thousand, which was not healthy; the machine was even rejecting SSH connections.

Fortunately, I have two virtual IP addresses with separate CBQ bandwidth queues, and ssh still worked on those. Once in, I was able to shut down the Postfix listener for munitions.com. I’ll leave it down for a few days, and hope that this clown switches phony addresses soon.

And maybe I’ll see about adding that SPF record I haven’t gotten around to…
