Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2012-11-03 16:51:53 UTC
For a spamming-oriented domain / hosting service, it is possible to spray out a bunch of spam ads with embedded URI's pointing to themselves, before the URIDNSBL services catch up and blacklist them.  It would be handy if the spamassassin machines could do a bit of this themselves, by identifying the ASN not only for the email originators, but also the IP addresses associated with web site URLs mentioned in the emails.

Then, ASNs associated with website spams could gradually be learned by the bayes system to build one's own URIBL.

See also bug #5655, which should be considered a prerequisite for this one.
