WARNING: Whois mining operation (probably spam related).

  • From: John Palmer (NANOG Acct)
  • Date: Sun Feb 03 03:39:41 2002

Starting about 6am eastern time, we began getting several hundred hits per
second from
IP address 195.188.22.6 to our WHOIS server.

It appears that they were running a rather well endowed dictionary against
the database.

Beware - these are spammers (I know the address very well). Check your logs
if you have
any email servers or whois databases.

This is a jerk from England who is a known fraudster.
