The level of spam sent in Finnish has significantly increased over the years, which is why the Suomispam Reputation Blacklist was created.
What is The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist?
The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist is a blacklist that flags IP Addresses who send spam in the Finnish language.
The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist is a spam-based blacklist, meaning single IP Addresses or entire ranges can land on the list. A few examples of spam messages may be malware filled emails or unsolicited bulk emails.
This blacklist is unique because it doesn't automatically block spam. Instead it simply provides a list of IP Addresses who are guilty of sending spam in the Finnish language. The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist publishes that information and allows the public to do what they please with it.
Why Was I Listed On The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist?
The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist has four categories:
Spam sources are listed because they are sending unsolicited bulk email or emails that contain spam.
Spamvertised sites are those who outsource their spamming campaigns to others. In turn, The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist will list the sender, the redirectors, and the target sites.
Escalation: The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist uses escalation when the spam volume and activity is exceptionally high.
Suspcicious: The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist uses suspicion tactics when there is reason to believe networks are sending spam campaigns. These tactics alert The Suomispam Reputation Blacklist of a network that they will keep on their radar.
