Anyone else noticing a distributed mass subscribe attack going on their lists?

I've noticed a massive number of attempts a small subset of email addresses, with modifiers (address+modif...@example.com), going on.

It appears the address is valid ... so it appears to be some kind of hit job to flood someone's inbox.

Luckily the address's are trivial to block using 'ban_list'.

The hosts they are using appear to be from all over the place, although they do seem to be favoring hosts serviced by virtua.com.br.


I would report this to  mail-ab...@cert.br .
