Comment Spammersby satman
well something happened this morning where someone decided to storm my comments and leave some sort of spam posts like "Tanhks alot - your answer solved all my problems after several days struggling" . Im glad to say my defense scripts sort of worked and did not allow link backs to rubbish links but it was intriguing to discover where they originated. here is some data from the posts  ill make public so anyone can investigate further or blacklist
  • Username,   Email,   linkback,   IP of Origin
  • Lacey,, fHQplBiHryVCVDeA,
  • Roseanna,, NEuepNPiE,
  • Earthwind,, LnqkEOjedESVHceXjw,

  • Roxy,, PMwjyRXQSUf,

Most problably a botnet using global zombie PCs - these people don't even know that their machines are being used to post to websites and send spam email.

Interesting news article over on Ars talking about the FBI vs. one such Botnet, Coreflood:

Ive noticed something in common with most of these spams coming through, an invalid linkback URL so now I will check the validity of this box if it has an entry to try and stem the trash. If it continues without any linkback entries I shall try out ReCaptcha
