We did adjust the policy for Level 3 by adding an upper limit of 10000 IPs to prevent huge ASNs, which spread massive spam, to fly under Level 3's radar, because of their sheer size.
Here ist the adjusted and immediately valid Policy for Level 3.
Payment service provider Paypal really believe that they can treat long-standing customers like shit and withhold their money for no reason, but with all kinds of tricky excuses from their Terms and Conditions for some days, weeks, or even months.
In our opinion, they are clearly asking to boycott them.
That's the reason why we do no longer accept Paypal, and why we recommend, that every owner of a Paypal account, who does not want to come into the same situation, should remove any money from their Paypal account immediately, and to close the account, after the balance is Zero and all money was removed successfully.
After receiving numerous complaints about constantly changing prices in USD and EURO, we have decided to quote our prices in Swiss francs (CHF) only.
In addition, by eliminating the exchange rate risk, we were able to lower our prices by around 10%.
Paypal automatically converts your local currency into CHF, if necessary, so you do not suffer any disadvantages.
We introduced the pillory at our website so that anyone can see all of those black hat providers that managed to be currently listed in UCEPROTECT-Level 3.

Policies for Levels 2 and 3 were adjusted to be more effective against well known long time spammers.
Since UCEPROTECT-Network started to publish it's downloadable blocklists in RBLDNSD format (03.07.2007) almost all of our users which are using downloadable formats have switched to download RBLDNSD via RSYNC.
Also UCEPROTECT-Mailserver Software is using the RBLDNSD format since V4.0
Therefore the other formats (Postfix / Sendmail access, Qmail, UCEPROTECT-Software Version 3.5 and older) and also the HTTP download option via WGET became obsolete and will no longer be offered after 01.01.2010
If you are still using these formats or if you download via WGET, we strongly recommend that you switch to using us either via DNS or to download our blocklists via RSYNC in RBLDNSD format only.
Details how to use RSYNC and RBLDNSD can be found here.
UCEPROTECT-Network now maintains a HIGH-TRUST whitelist too.
For details see:
We have installed a feedback-loop for interested companies or providers.

Project UCEPROTECT-Network has chosen to mirror it's own zones (UCEPROTECT Level 1, 2, 3) and BACKSCATTERER.ORG zones only.
Other lists form external vendors formerly mirrored by us were dropped
Project UCEPROTECT-Network now offers all zones available also for download with RSYNC in RBLDNSD format.

UCEPROTECT-Level 1 was cleaned up, and is now one of the most accurate and reliable blacklists again.
UCEPROTECT Level 1 does no longer list backscatterer and sender callout abusers. A new list was established for that reason:
