hey #mastoadmins, i've been seeing a lot of spam registrations over on scalie.business. M.O. is a username that seems like it's a bunch of randomly selected syllables strung together, a display name that's Firstname Lastname (seems to be from real people on fedi in some cases), and an email that's <username> @ one of these domains: https://pastebin.com/vq2MbUCh
they haven't done anything yet other than confirm their accounts, including follow anyone other than the default follows, but watch out in case they do
#mastoadmins followup re: account registration spam: looks like all the spam account emails point to the same MX server, mxsrv.mailasrvs.pw. if you add this domain to the email blacklist, it should prevent any email whose domain has an MX record pointing there.
tl;dr: add mxsrv.mailasrvs.pw to your email blacklist, it should prevent most of these spam registrations
