Our first review is the 3M company (Ticker MMM). In 23 days we collected 11 spam from 18.104.22.168 which is delegated to 3M by ARIN:
OrgName: 3M Company
Address: 3M Center
Address: Bldg 224-4N-27
City: St. Paul
NetRange: 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199
The spam were all image based Stock Pump-n-Dump SPAM touting stocks EXVG (up 15% today) BTOD (up 13% today) and GDKI (down 37%) Stock spam continues to plague companies traded on Over The Counter markets like the Pink Sheets.
We reviewed the routes announced by 3M (AS7792) which announced the entire 188.8.131.52/14 as one block. Our analysis of the routes for this prefix shows no more specific announcements or any other origin for the 3M block. Once we have reasonably shown there were no route hijacking we can determine that our spamtrap did actually connect with and recieve SPAM from one of 3M's machines.
3M shoulod consider taking a look at the following addresses:
