'New Generation Blog Network' spam

Post by NotBuyingIt » Sun Jun 09, 2019 3:38 am

Since about 21-March-2019, I've been encountering incessant forum spam advertising nine pornographic sites. The comments are very similarly constructed, always vulgar if not lewd. The following sites are all hosted by Cloudflare; their domains are registered through Danesco Trading Ltd. and they represent themselves as "New Generation Blog Network".
  • allproblog.com
  • bestsexyblog.com
  • bloglag.com
  • fetlifeblog.com
  • hotblognetwork.com
  • instakink.com
  • instasexyblog.com
  • relayblog.com
  • xblognetwork.com*
The ninth domain in the list seems to oprate slightly differently than the other eight.

Of course as a forum user, or forum admin without the right tool, the spam sending IP address(es) isn't/aren't seen.

The forum moderators who are volunteers from the WoT users' community don't ever see the senders' IP addresses. One important reason is WoT's pledge at the end of 2017 to provide more privacy.

I did web searches of the domain names listed in the OP and found the same style of comment spam littered across the web, My guess is that the spammer abuses the transmitting IP addresses in addition to abusing the sites where the advertisements are posted.

Differing forum-board software have differing back end anti-spam capability (ies)--variety of anti-spam methods.

Many of the spammers are using email addresses at the domains below:
@toptorrents.top
@besttorrents.top
@gotorrents.top
@downloadism.top


Account registration for new members using email addresses for any of these should be blocked.

This member search works surprisingly well:
