The Network Abuse Clearinghouse is intended to help the Internet community to report and control network abuse and abusive users. Since the best place to report abusive activity varies from one system to another, we're trying to keep a master database of reporting addresses for users throughout the net to use. The database is provided in four forms:
See How do I submit contact information for a domain?
Listing a domain in the abuse.net database does not imply that the domain has ever done anything abusive. The majority of the entries in the abuse.net database of domain contacts were submitted voluntarily by responsible providers and domain managers. You can't conclude anything about the fact that a domain appears in the list other than that we have some idea of who the contact is.
Decoding single-number network addresses
A lot of junk e-mail now attempts to disguise the names of web sites they advertise by showing the web site's address as a single large number rather than by its name. Use this simple decoder script to find the host number and name.
Some semi-automated abuse reporting tools
Some tools to help figure out where a message came from and send complaints.

If you feel that abuse.net has been useful to you, please make a contribution to your local food bank, which needs money a lot more than we ever will. Thanks.
(By the way, most food banks can make better use of cash contributions than canned or boxed food. That's because there's a great deal of food available for free or close to it if they can pay to transport it.)
