| Actually not a list entry but a complaint.
| 
| We have received 5 DSHIELD emails in the last 40 days saying
| that we have a bad address scanning somebody in our range.
| Problem is that the addresses are not even close. Looks like
| DSHIELD have some lazy programming in that we have the top
| Address range as in 203.202.0.0 therefore it is assumed that
| 203.202.110.0 is one of our addresses. Wrong these are "C" class
| address ranges. Maybe it is some other logic issue but I have replied
| stating "URGENT" and have not heard anything back.
| 
| Anyway can you please stop this.

| Thanks

Michael et al.

Have occasionally experienced same kind of unlucky incorrectness with
info in DShield DB. The parsing module for IP info apparently indeed
needs trimming.

The funny thing is that the DShield site reads "Last Fightback Sent:
sent to abuse at ac3.com.au on 2005-03-02 16:52:00 no reply received" for
this IP even when you apparently HAVE REPLIED (with a complaint stating
that the Abuse complaint was sent to incorrect address in the first
place).

PS. I just submitted a "request contact update" at DShield site's IP
Info page (at
https://secure.dshield.org/ipinfo.php?ip=203.202.110.48&Submit=Submit)
for IP 203.202.110.48 providing the following info to DShield:

abuse at optus.net.au

abuse at optus.net.au = Contact E-mail

ipadmin at optus.net.au or abuse at optus.net.au = AS Contact (instead of
incorrect abuse at ac3.com.au)

OPTUSCOM-AU = AS Name (instead of incorrect ac3, Australian Centre for
Advanced Computing and Communications)


203.202.110.48

203.202.72.0 - 203.202.191.255
