WordPress Spam

Last weekend I was bombarded by comment spam on this blog. 😮 It seems that the Akismet spam filter got caught off guard with a new style of flood spam spreading for the past few weeks. 😯

The WordPress forum has people talking about the latest comment spam going around.

Luckily I was able to block those IP addresses and it’s been working so far, with 466 spam already been blocked and reported. 😎

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope no one else is going through this. 😦

  1. I have notifications about new posts and comments turned on for your blog and when they start coming into my inbox, I thought someone is deliberately attacking you in order to hack your account. Luckily, it was (only) spam 😀
