A Better Way to Fight Scam Calls

    πŸ“‚ Social     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

The usual advice on handling scam calls has been to not answer unknown caller id’s or hang up immediately and to not interact, lest the scammers will flag the number as live and will call it more often.

In a previous post I covered updating my self-hosted Sendmail program to the newest version with some additions such as TLS 1.2 and DKIM.

Dabbling in IPv6

    πŸ“‚ Internet     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments
