Getting a lot of spam from .tk domains – kill it with spamassassin

Seems they are cheap to set up, spammers set up domainkeys / SPF too!

Here’s a spamassassin rule (don’t use it if you get valid mail from .tk):

header      NAUGHTY_FROM_TLD  From   =~ /@[a-z0-9\-\.]+\.(tk)/i
describe    NAUGHTY_FROM_TLD  From address is from a naughty TLD (eg .tk)
score       NAUGHTY_FROM_TLD  2.8

UPDATE: Looks like the spammers get a free .tk domain, rent a temporary DigitalOcean box, set up spam relay on it and blast out mail until it gets shut down.
