Fighting Child Porn....


Hate to bring everybody down on Christmas Got my usual amount of SPAM today, however, something was a little different. I received a SPAM that had child porn images in it. I viewed the source and got 3 different urls out of it. I didn't visit those sites, but it was obvious what they were by the content in the e-mail and the domain names themselves. Ran them through whois and came up with a Ukraine registrant and a Ukraine host (also had the same information as the registrant for the domains).


Now...what can be done about something like this...I've always considered myself a 'tough guy', but this crap turns my stomach...Where would one turn, particularly dealing with something in Ukraine.

oh Tom how absolutely terrible

and here I am thinking that most of the spam I get is hilariously funny if it weren't so annoying

what can you do ? I don't know but someone must !!!!

The Ukraine is subject to the same laws as the rest of the world isn't it ??

Can someone please tell Tom what he can do ?

How sickening .. I really feel quite sick

I feel outraged. I have 5 kids of my own and it sickens me to the core.

Since I was born and lived in Ukrain, I can tell you that you can't do anything about it BUT not to visit the site. Internet regulation is definitely the last thing on their list.

Thanks for the replies gang (progex, thanks for the link). I was careful not to look at it, and certainly did not visit the sites...I just cut the code up in the e-mail and researched the urls included in it...I will research it some more...Here, we have done some work with local law enforcement for things like this, but never out of the country where the slime are somewhat protected (for now)...The first thing I did was call the detective we work with here to see what she would recommend.....and there isn't a whole lot local law enforcement can do with a site in Ukraine. Thank you all again!!!

goto domainwhitepages.com and put in their domain. On the DNS lookup it should tell you who owns the IP block the site is on. If it is on a server in the US, Canada, UK or just about anywhere but the Ukrain you can turn it in to that government. Or at the least turn it in to the providing host which probably doesn't know it is on their server.

Send info to the host and the ISP that provides the connectivity to the host.

You probably will have better luck if you contact the connectivity provider.
