Seems a few IPs have been blacklisted as spam relays. Isolating the affected IPs now and will notify the clients; problem is the IP spread was large enough to affect a block of IPs. CPT and KZN IPs unaffected. Some JHB IPs affected.

Sup dawg

Please issue me with a new IP in any case. And have you had a chance to look at my IPv6 again? It seems to have stopped working.

nope still blacklisted
Looks like a malware is making the rounds - we've identified a few clients who are unwittingly acting as spam bots. For now we're dropping all the offending traffic and the TTLs on the blacklists should lift soon.

And this morning NOW?
AGAIN?
We saw a momentary drop in a small amount of traffic around 7:40 on one transit provider in JHB. Traffic immediately moved over to alternate paths- it always will - we have plenty of redundancy on our network.

Obviously the short drop is less than ideal- but routes do need a few seconds to adjust to changes in BGP. These drops on their CPT-JHB path have been the result of rare physical breaks and other issues on multiple NLD paths. They have assured us they are working on adding more redundancy to their NLD path from Cape Town, so like our own, it doesn’t go down.
