Recently I started to use a Norton/Symantec VPN. I can turn it on/off, and change the country that I access websites from to post or carry out purchases. I thought that it was safer to use a VPN for privacy and so a week or so back started to use the VPN.
For the last week when I log in to the forums to post I have been receiving the following message, "Your IP 159.65.XXX.XXX has been blocked because it is blacklisted. For details please see http://www.spamhaus.org/query/bl?ip=159.65.XXX.XXX
All that I do is turn off the VPN and everything is fine. Somebody somewhere spammed somebody. I do not send spam, nor hack anyone, so I don't know what this is about....if they are blocking the VPN domain or my actual address, I have no idea who spamhaus is. I am a client of AT&T and Norton/Symantec for the VPN.
Anyone have a clue about this?
I read the spamhaus docs a little bit more. Apparently they have had a spammer use their VPN, and now it is effecting me. I have to contact Norton/Symantec.
Happened to me without using a VPN. Gave me the same message when I was using data on my phone, then when I used WiFi it was okay. Now it’s back to normal.
The MAC Address on the data gateway must be being blocked.
