China blacklists offending IP addresses

The Internet Society of China's Anti-Spam Coordination Team (ASCT) has published a blacklist of mail servers sending spam.

The list includes 626 IP addresses of mail servers sending spam inside and outside China: 62 in mainland China, 65 in Taiwan, 6 in Hong Kong and 493 outside China. If the servers have not stopped sending spam by 20 March 2004 the ASCT will take further steps 'to push them into anti-spam action'. Those that cease to send spam during this timeframe will be removed from the blacklist.

This is the third edition of the ASCT's blacklist - the second edition, published in December 2003, included 27 IP addresses, of which 18 have now been removed. Full details can be found at
