Maru listed in CBL PLEASE FIX
« on: December 16, 2016, 07:14:00 AM »
I've sent a support ticket about this already, but maybe some public shaming will expedite the situation and/or prevent some other poor suckers from signing up with LP to begin with.

Maru ( is currently listed in the CBL as the site of a botnet, which means neither I nor anyone else parked on that server can send email. Needless to say, this is devastating to my business. I must be able to communicate with my clients, after all. And I have absolutely no idea when the issue will be resolved because LP never offers a time estimate, and it usually takes LP a loooong time to respond to these types of tickets. The last time this happened (earlier this year), it took about 10 days. That's 10 days without email access. Could your business survive that?

Link to the CBL report:

IP Address is listed in the CBL. It shows signs of being infected with a spam sending trojan, malicious link or some other form of botnet.

It was last detected at 2016-12-16 13:00 GMT (+/- 30 minutes), approximately 2 hours ago.

It has been relisted following a previous removal at 2016-12-15 23:23 GMT (15 hours, 34 minutes ago)

Perhaps the person who previously removed it didn't actually fix the problem.

This IP is infected (or NATting for a computer that is infected) with the necurs spambot. In other words, it's participating in a botnet.

This situation also calls into question LP's general ability to properly secure their servers. I know I certainly don't want my site hosted on a server with questionable security. Time to find a new host, I guess.
