Poneytelecom.eu / Online SAS: Hosting Botnets, Scrappers, Spammers and Hacking Scripts
For the last two years we had almost daily attacks from specific IPs. All kind of attacks like targeting WordPress sites and WP plugin vulnerabilities. More than 3-4 per day. The IPs belong to Poneytelecom.eu but their webpage redirects to Online SAS in France. They “claim” to be a hosting company, offering also dedicated servers. ROFL.
Online SAS – BP 438 – 75366 Paris CEDEX 08 – RCS Paris B 433 115 904
There is plenty of information about the above if you google “PoneyTelecom.eu”. A lot of people are reporting server abuse and hacking attempts from Online SAS / Iliad-Entreprises IPs.
So we decided to use their abuse ticketing and see what happens. We did that for a hundred times and the result was the same, a reply that the “issue has be resolved”. And after a few days we got a new attack for some-kind.
This must be one of the worst hosting companies i have ever seen. And it is rather strange because they are located in France and not in Ukraine. France is a European country, am i right ? They do have laws in France, don’t they ?
I think Online SAS / PoneyTelecom.eu / Iliad-Entreprises (or whatever other funny names they have) are just a hosting company that tolerate spamming, hacking tools hosting and botnets. So they have built a reputation for that and they attract all kind of illegal internet activities.
So i will dedicate a few pages and comments for that crappy ONLINE SAS French company. With details, IPs and their reply. If i was in France i would sue them also, since we have huge log file just for them.
Here is a small sample from their attacks. At some point we will (try to) block all their IPs since all those daily attacks pose heavy load to our server and sites.
