Referer Spammer of the Month Award

Kahunaburger.com is proud to present the first “Referer Spammer of the Month Award”.

It was a close race between the two favorites and only a few hundred referer spam entries separate them, but in the end, there can only be one winner.

We analyzed our Apache server logs from the last few weeks and looked up all log entries that show “referer” information. Here’s a sample line from the logs that shows the free-online-texas-holdem.fidelityfunding.net site refering to an entry on kahunaburger.com:

82.194.62.16 - - [17/Jan/2005:09:21:26 -0700] "GET /blog/archives/000113.html HTTP/1.1" 200 10196 "http://free-online-texas-holdem.fidelityfunding.net/" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CL
R 1.1.4322)"

Of course, nobobdy on fidelityfunding.net knows that kahunaburger.com even exists, but that’s a different story.

Anyway, we extracted similar lines from the log-files and looked up the ip-address for the host that refered our site. In this case the ip-address for free-online-texas-holdem.fidelityfunding.net would be 219.150.118.16.
We counted how often a certain ip-address refered to us and what hostname was used in the referal process.

To make it short, there’s only a first and a second place. First place goes to 64.234.220.141 with 1621 referer spam entries and second place goes to 219.150.118.16 with 1315 referer spam entries.

Congratulations to the winners! You really make the web a better place with all the useful advice you offer for free! Keep up the good work! And hopefully we’ll see some other people join the competition for next months awards?!

  • Wade Says:

    Outstanding.

    I’m sure the fine folks at WebStream, Inc of Ft. Lauderdale, FL (owners of the 64.234.220.141 netblock) will be glad to know that they have a more prolific spammer than CHINANET henan province network (owners of 219.150.118.16) does. WebStream has an abuse email listed (abuse@webstream.net) in case you want to see if they’d be willing to, I don’t know, shut down their spammer and/or compromised box.

    I’ve got the strains of Tina Turner’s “Simply The Best” going through my head as I firewall off more IPs promoting fidelityfunding.net.

    Poem is a strange type of literature, isnt it?
