Looks like posting is going to be light for a little while as I clean out the stupid comment spam which basically killed the server and bogged down the system yesterday. Have been manually trying to kill the spam messages but I guess it is not working. Wondering about two things: switch to a more secure blogging software system or go hosted to Typepad. Any help would be deeply appreciated. This is not good – at least from the MT perspective.
One thought on “Spam Attack!”
If Om’s server doesn’t support MT-blacklist (why the h*ll not??), try James Seng’s security plugin for MT (makes the user enter an automagically generated number from an image):
Hope this helps. I’m doubling up, using MT-blacklist plus James Seng’s security plug-in and hoping that I can fix my blamming problem.
