Newbie Needs Help - Spam Attack (4 posts)

    I appreciate anybody who could steer me in the right direction.

    WordPress was set up for me and was working great until recently.

    Now I get hundreds of the same exact e-mail spam and I can no longer post.

    Should I delete WordPress? Where should I go for help with this?

    Any links or assistance is greatly appreciated.

    what version of WP are you using? Are you running any spam protection plugins (spam karma 2, akismet, bad behavior?)

    If not, that would be where I started.

    I use karma 2 and bad behavior.

    I recommend Askimet, fortunatley if you are using any of the WordPress 2.0.x series you should have it installed already but it needs activating.
