sharkbait

crazycomputers kicked off a project called Sharkbait (http://sharkbait.sourceforge.net/) that tracks email address harvesters and facilitates reporting. Works with spamgourmet (and other services that let you generate email addresses) -- pretty cool!

Cool. I use a similar concept service:

Just add a new subdomain and set it's MX accordingly. I've nailed seventeen spammers. Wooo me!

(too bad there's not an easy way to install SG on shared webhosting)

SG itself ran on shared webhosting for quite awhile -- if you a) can have all email for your domain forwarded to your shell account on the shared server, b) are able to "pipe" the messages to a program, c) have mysql or some other suitable (but untested) rdbms), and d) have perl, it should work.

files

Sorry, never got around to making a real release, but the files are available from CVS. I plan on working more on this recently, but have had many projects going (school, internships, etc).

I also need a good way to test this, which means I need to find a high-traffic, frequently-crawled site that will run Sharkbait for me... any ideas?
Real programmers don't comment their code. It was hard to write; it should be hard to understand.
