today I had to find out that during my holiday a typo was entered into
our mailconfig, we use a bunch of dnsbl's, amongst others the CBL
Now, the 'e' from abuse was left out by mistake it seems, so since
07:40 (GMT+2) we suddenly started bouncing everything based on - as it
appeared to others - the CBL...
From the PIR whois I got:
jpv@jp-gp: ~ $ whois -h whois.pir.org abusat.org

So, in case anyone else made a typo and didn't notice, you might want
to check before you get angry calls about it. This domaingrabber is
answering all queries within this zone:
jpv@jp-gp: ~ $ dig 126.96.36.199.cbl.abusat.org. A | grep 'IN A '
188.8.131.52.cbl.abusat.org. 591 IN A 184.108.40.206
I think I have to talk my boss out of taking all my vacation days...
He "urged" me to dip in to my (half a year worth) reserve... ;D
