Nonce, Please!

"Nonce, Please!" is a simple plugin that prevents brute-force comments and trackbacks from spammer. This is *NOT* an alternatives to Akismet.

Akismet is a great plugin to block spam comments/trackbacks. It detects spams completely. But, Akismet allows to accept unsolicited feedbacks, and to store them in the database. It is weaker act to fight with spams. A better way is to reject them.

Also, the architecture of WordPress is vulnerable for spammer. Because the comment API is fixed URL like: "wp-comments-post.php", "wp-trackback.php, or "http://blog.example.com/archives/99/trackback/". Therefore, spammers can easily post bulk comments/trackbacks to WordPress weblogs.

"Nonce, Please!" add a nonce (random strings) to the comment hidden field and/or the trackback URL. A valid comment and/or trackback should have a nonce string. Bulk feedbacks will not have nonce. This plugins also verifies that a new comment/trackbacks has the valid nonce. If there is no nonce or an invalid one, the feedback is rejected.

Adding and verifying nonce is automatic, users are not do anything!
