Digital Ocean Spam / Virus

     We have received a large number of spams containing a virus from Digital Ocean address spaces.  We are receiving these exclusively from digital address space.  For every one of these I have sent e-mail to their published abuse address, abuse@digitalocean.com and to their NOC at noc@digitalocean.com.

     I have yet to receive a single reply and as a consequence I initially started blocking individual addresses these came from.  But still they continue.  Now I am blocking entire address blocks as we receive this virus / spam.  I am also sending this to blacklist maintainers as well as using it as a source to train our baysian filters.

     At present the following address space is blocked for incoming mail:

167.172.127.122 REJECT Spam Digital Ocean

     I don’t like to do this but when a company will not respond to complaints and the spams are viral in nature, I am left with little choice.  I have also submitted a copy to clam-av folks to generate a signature for this.
