well, normally I would complain, but I think it's beautiful to not have
to worry about whiny people blocking my IP because they think my
company's newsletter is spam because they don't know how to
unsubscribe...

It's worse than that. There's a Word script on the page that downloads
and runs the file for you. It's only effective if you're running
Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word. Otherwise, it just sits
in cache. It is intended to install a trojan for forwarding spam.
Microsoft is so very user friendly!


Ir was posted from Google, but they claim it doesn't bother them to have
their service used for that. ("We don't control content" or some such.)

Nothing seems to concern Google, these days, with the exception
of making money.

You can report SPAM, viruses, etc., 'til you're blue in the face,
but nothing ever seems to get resolved.

As the same message was posted to multiple groups, I have sent the
following message to security@google.com with the subject line "You are
fouling your own nest/reputation". Will they stand up for their own
"good name"?

Interesting. I did run it in a 'safe' environment.
It pops up a window titled "password generator"
and askes you to fill in your email and password (!).
I assume it then attempts to e-mail those details
to the autor. It may behave differently in a real
windows environment though.

So it is a password generator after all. :^)

I've sent a mail to the owner of the domain.
The site which runs on it seems legit, so it might be the owner of the
domain/site is unaware. (Although just to be sure I left no answering
address).

I've received a reply from Groups Beta Support asking for clarification.
We'll see what results.

I think there were several things that lead to a solution.

I addressed original concern to security AT google.com .
After a little prompting ;)  from "Groups Beta Support", I:
1. briefly described the problem.
2. described what steps had been taken to precisely identify
the problem [ quoting relevant portions of Jerry Avins' and
Iwo Mergler's posts ].
3. described preferred response - blocking OP.
4. described why it would be to their benefit to correct the problem.

Anyone notice a similarity to oft repeated posting suggestions ;}

It may have helped that you were at least the second person to do that.

Spamcop (http://www.spamcop.net) is a good source for abuse reporting
addresses:

host matweb.info (checking ip) = 62.195.137.150
host 62.195.137.150 (getting name) = i137150.upc-i.chello.nl.
No recent reports, no history available
Routing details for 62.195.137.150
Report routing for 62.195.137.150: abuse@chello.nl

Dear Holger Rener,

Did you say something?
All I received was Jerry's response to my post.

Or is problem somewhere on my end.
I've seen other replies that appeared to have no new content.
I was not interested in those threads, so did not follow up.

Comments anyone. Please.

[ As this is posted to multiple groups, may I suggest that responders
note what group they are reading. It may help to define the problem.
I read comp.dsp .]

For those wishing to reply personally, my reply to is valid -- and
heavily filtered.
