smurf reporting

  • From: Mikael Abrahamsson
  • Date: Mon Jun 08 03:58:04 1998

To report smurfs in a more automated fashion we need a utility that'll
take an IP number as input and then return email adresses from the
arin/ripe whois database. I guess this can be done an an hour or five :)
but I wonder if someone already has done this and would consider posting
it here or to me privately?

I was also pondering if mail should be sent to upstream providers or not,
for instance, if one of netcoms customers was a smurf intermediate, doing
a whois on their /24 would reveal both them and netcom, should an email be
sent to both? I think this would be a good thing the way things are run
here in Europe (when the ISP often owns the router placed at the customers
location) but I dont know how it is run over over there so perhaps someone
could enlighten me and give me an opinion?
