Journal Firefalcon's Journal: SpamAssassin Rules Emporium Offline

SARE, the SpamAssassin Rules Emporium where Spamassassin users can download useful anti-spam rule sets, has been down since yesterday (2007-06-07). (View via GoogleCache).

In the Spamassassin Users mailing list, one user suggested that it was related to the fact that was also down, as was, the latter of which, at the time of writing, is now showing an Apache default page saying "It works!".

According to a diary entry by Bojan Zdrnja at The SANS Institute, spammers have been carrying out a DDOS against these sites and also against Spamhaus (which appears to be weathering the storm better than the others).

"Yet Another Ninja" requested in a reply that users disable the downloading of Spamassassin rules from until further notice (RDJ = Rules Du Jour - described here).

Update 2007-06-09: URIBL is back online...
