What is the best way to report a potential source of spam

I have come across the following site http://www.nava.epac.to which claims to offer anonymising software.

The reason for my search was that I have been hard hit by spam recently which was untraceable and decided to search the net for its potential source.

Any suggestions as to how to proceed and get this source of spam closed down??

regards

I resolved nava.epac.to to 213.149.168.184, then did a whois (IP owner) search HERE. It looks like the site is hosted on either webspace provided by Cytanet, or on one of their customer's connections.

Either way, it's probably against their AUPs to host this kind of thing, so you might want to look around their website for more information.

Many thanks - I will send an abuse email and see what happens Smiley

You could use SpamCop's spam reporting service - see http://www.spamcop.net/.

I tried spamcop, along with various traces on the IP address in the headers, all came up blank.

Thanks to eurotrain's help, I was able to trace the domain used by the author of one of these anonymising programs and have sent an abuse email to the ISP, however the site is still up....

I wonder whether there is anything we can do to stop people selling this type of software. As far as I can determine, in spite of EU laws regarding spam email, the selling of software that facilitates this is not illegal.

Nope, the software is not illegal.

In adition, you may even find that most ISPs hosting such sites are even part of or have links with the porn industry.

This is due to the fact that if you can get a host that will serve porn, software such as that is a non-issue.
