Possible backscatter spam coming from my server [en]

lundi, mai 30th, 2011

Between 20:00 and 23:00 CET, some backscatter spam slipped through my server due to a misconfiguration on my side.

I was trying to set up a secondary MX for the non-profit association BxLUG,an association promoting Free Software in Brussels.

The configuration files have been reverted to their original versions. It might take some time for the DNS entries to propagate.

I am sorry for any inconvenience it might have caused. In the meantime, i have some reading to do…

About the random downtime [fr]

You might have noticed that this server is unreachable at times.

This problem is well known: the server simply runs out of RAM.
With 256 MiB of RAM, the server quickly hit the swap, system load is increasing and keep on thrashing until the OOM-killer comes into play and happily kill processes.

This will soon come to an end: i got a new server recently with 2 GiB of RAM (w00T !!) and now i’m busy preparing it carefully.

Please be patient… 🙂
