[tor-talk] Tor and Spamhaus.
I was looking at exit nodes on http://www.ip-score.com/ which checks
dozens of blacklists. Typically, each exit node is considered bad by
about five blacklists. I've checked about 15 exit nodes and all are
blacklisted by xbl.spamhaus.org and, by extension, zen.spamhaus.org (zen
is a compendium of all Spamhaus' blacklists; if an IP is in one then
it's in zen).
Virtually all are in cbl.abuseat.org which is the Composite Blacklist
which is a part of Spamhaus.
Yet most blacklisting services do not consider exit nodes to be dubious.
This situation would not be an issue except for the popularity of
Question: why does Spamhaus in particular target exit nodes? Does this
have an effect on Tor users? How is Spamhaus actually used? For example,
if I go to Craigslist and can't use the website and get "This IP has
been automatically blocked" or when I login to Gmail I am forced to
verify myself, is this related to Spamhaus' blacklisting?
