===========================================================================

This Request For Discussion comes after much consideration and
significant effort on my part and the part of others to avoid this
action. Unfortunately, I feel the options have been exhausted. As
always, it is my hope that the reasons for remedial action may be
adequately addressed, in order to prevent any UDP action.

Telstra has an abysmal history with respect to ignoring long term
net-abuse issues. Trying to get any response from them is next to
impossible. In the past five years, I've only managed to elicit a
response from them on one issue. At that time, I was attempting
to de-peer Matt Middleton's rouge spam feed, in October, 1998.
Other than that, the best I've been able to manage are auto-acks.

Even when their nntp servers are being hijacked, flooding Usenet
with malicious rogue cancels and supersedes messages, let alone
thousands spammed posts, reports are met with deafening silence.

This unresponsiveness is mirrored by their Bigpond subsidiary.
Here, I can see their resident spammers being reassigned to
different IPs, but they continue their operations unimpeded. All
previous attempts at opening channels of communication have
apparently fallen on deaf ears, including stern warnings that
their failure to act against ongoing abuse issues would lead
directly to this opening of formal Usenet Death Penalty
discussions.

As I prepared this RFD, I pulled all of the Cancelled Spam
Statistics relating to Telstra (and more specifically, Bigpond).
From 03 Apr 1998 through 04 March 2003, all appearances of any
'Top Spam Sources by Injection Site', 'Top Spam Sources by
Upstream Site', 'Top Spam Sources by Posting-Host' and 'Top Spam
Sources by Path Tail' showing Telstra or Bigpond averaged 1,230
spam cancels directed against these posts.

If we assume that the average number of articles shown in the
Ultra Hippo statistics is close to being correct, 2,629 articles
were posted to news-server.bigpond.net.au on a daily basis, from
21 Mar 2002, through 22 Mar 2003. Over approximately the same
time spam, a daily average of 1,578 cyberspam cancels are being
issued against this output. This would indicate that over that
past year 60% of the articles posted to news-server.bigpond.net.au
are spam.

While the Ultra Hippo statistics shown indicate they are _only_
dropping 41% of this feed, that such a small site, in terms of
overall volume, has averaged the 18th highest source of spam over
this period, is a clear indication that little or nothing is being
done to stem this never ending pink tide.

When you look at the KByte counts, shown in the Ultra Hippo
statistics, you'll note that the bulk of the spam coming from
Bigpond consists of binary posts, with 69,644 KB dropped daily.
Of these, a significant and unacceptably high number of binaries
are being posted to text only newsgroups.

As a specific area of concern, Bigpond's *.qld.bigpond.net.au
IPs appear most consistently in the NNPH and at the highest
volume of spam. While I'll save some space (and the reader's
patience), *.qld.bigpond.net.au has appeared in the Cancelled
Spam Statistics 291 times, since 28 Mar 2002. During this period
of time, 321,211 spam cancels have been directed against articles
originating from these addresses, averaging 1,104 per appearance.

Another area of concern is the *.sa.bigpond.net.au IP address.
These have appeared in the NNPH stats a total of 210 times,
averaging 454 cancelled articles per appearance.

One possible reason that Bigpond/Telstra appears to be making no
headway, is that as soon as one of their spammers disappears from
one IP address, they immediately turn up at another.

Guessing whether accounts are being cancelled and the spammers are
signing right back up, or Bigpond is simply reassigning them IPs,
would be purely conjecture on my part. Regardless, it is time for
this to stop.

Unfortunately, the Maxwell Path analysis tool
<http://tfeed.maxwell.syr.edu/tfeed/usepaths.html> is down.
Fortunately, I have plenty of samples available locally.

Here's a Path analysis is taken from 1,179 sets of spam headers
provided to Bigpond and Telstra on 03 Mar 2003.

Proposal
==========================================================================

Proposed: a two phase Usenet Death Penalty of telstra.net

1) a full passive UDP; shunning or Path aliasing
"news-server.bigpond.net.au" and "newsfeeds.bigpond.com".

2) a full active UDP; cancelling all Usenet posts showing
a bigpond.net.au or bigpond.com origin.

This proposed UDP action is a boycott and will in no way impinge
upon any service for which the users of news-server.bigpond.net.au
are paying. These users will be able to continue posting and
reading news, just as they are. The only effect would be on where
articles posted to news-server.bigpond.net.au appear, beyond
TELSTRA.NET's borders.

Please see:

"Usenet Death Penalty FAQ"
<http://www.stopspam.org/usenet/faqs/udp.html>

"Spam Glossary" <http://www.rahul.net/falk/glossary.html#udp>

"Net Abuse FAQ"
<http://www.cybernothing.org/faqs/net-abuse-faq.html#3.19>.

Should an UDP be called, the standard five business day notice
will be provided, so that the UDP target can take whatever
necessary action to alleviate the need for moving to the
enforcement stage of the called UDP.

As with any announced UDP action, all resources will be made
available to the target ISP, in an attempt to limit the necessity
for such drastic steps being taken. It is truly unfortunate that
it has come to this action of last resort.

Respectfully submitted, 06 March 2003.
