Yesterday afternoon, Copernica disabled file downloads upon the discovery of a security risk by one of our users. The reporting user was able to download random files by manually altering URLs. To prevent abuse, all file downloads were disabled completely on the spot.
Starting 24 until 27 October, the 38th M3AAWG meeting will take place in Paris. The M3AAWG, or Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group, consists of over 200 organizations, among which Apple, Microsoft, Google and Facebook. Copernica is also represented in this network, as the only Dutch ESP. The M3AAWG meets twice a year to discuss and develop new methods for fighting spam and malware, among other things. It’s the biggest worldwide network in the Internet industry concerning these subjects.
What is discussed during these meetings, is a secret to outsiders. But, with the knowledge we gain during them, Copernica keeps on working on the safety of email marketing. For example, our newly released Sender Domains feature makes it possible to set up automatic DKIM rotation and DMARC easily.
