EC2 e-mail and MAPS

'noids,

Apparently this problem has been affecting EC2 users for several
months. Some users have also had problems with Spamhaus listings.
Here is a link to one of several related discussion threads on
Amazon's discussion forums:
http://tinyurl.com/ye3wblc

Apparently some EC2 users have been able to get Amazon to set up
reverse DNS (PTR records) for their IP addresses, which has enabled
some users to get Trend Micro to delist them in MAPS.
This blog posting is an example:

Cyberwar

I am starting to read up on cyberwar. Any suggestions for reading
material? I just finished the NRC report, but I am looking for something
a little more technically oriented, rather than being about law and
policy.

Thanks,

Cyberwar

Ed -

The Times began a series today on this topic.
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/26/world/26cyber.html?scp=2&sq=cyberwar&s...

I am still interested in electronic medical records and have been asking
people about the practice/policy of not deleting anything from a record.
Nobody I have spoken to seems to know whether this is a regulation of some
kind and what its origins are. Have you any idea?

Thanks.

Take a look at (listen to?) episode 227 of Steve Gibson's "Security Now"
podcast:
http://www.grc.com/securitynow.htm
or
http://twit.tv/sn227
The episode title, not coincidentally, is "Cyberwarfare."

Cyberwar

John Arquilla is considered to be the black prince of information
warfare. I would recommend anything he had a hand in writing.

Re: EC2 e-mail and MAPS

Yes, it has been going on for sometime. Part of the trouble I think is that the black hole listing folks are treating Amazon like an ISP and Amazon doesn't want to be an ISP. At the end of the day Amazon is going to have to give up and begin behaving like an ISP, giving more control over DNS records and IP addresses to those who pay for them.
Of course Amazon could just draw a line in the cloud and say no outbound SMTP service just like so many ISPs do.
