Updates and Commentary from the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group

Please join us on July 27th for our first live Engagement Series event. Open Source Applications for the Anti-Abuse Ecosystem is our newest M3AAWG initiative started last month after the Open Round Table discussions held during the 52nd general meeting. The facilitated live discussion will touch on Open Source Application characteristics, challenges, and types of messaging and abuse related applications (MTA/SMTP/abuse/authentication) as a starting point. 

With cyberattacks of all forms and sizes making headlines, we’re reminded that the work to make the internet a safer, more secure place for all is a continuous effort, underlining the importance of the work of M3AAWG and its members.

Email security professionals have long been worried about attackers abusing shared SPF authorization within a multitenant hosting service. When many customers share the same infrastructure, there are increased concerns about abuse. Just such an attack against members sharing the same sending servers led to a deep dive session on the topic at the recent M3AAWG 51 meeting. During the panel discussion, the security analysts who detected the attack explained what they found, and participants from the abused hosting service shared lessons learned with the broader community.
