Spam Comments (3 posts)

    Hello Everyone,
    I am getting spam comments on posts that don't even exist. How did this happen? It looks like the person wants people to go to a Texas Hold'em poker site. S/he posted comments for post #1 - #7, which don't even exist. My first post number is 50, I believe.
    I'm wondering if my blog is in danger. Could this person go in and, for instance, delete my post entries, modify them or whatever else?
    Thanks in advance,
    Johnnie

    My real question was how in the world did this person, persons or bot post comments for posts that don't exist? Thanks for the link! Now I know that I am not alone with the Texas Holdem spammer.

    This same thing happened to me. I looked at my MySQL database and saw about 30 comment entries for posts that don't as yet exist. I suspect that the holdem bot runs some scripts that just runs through a loop and submits a bunch of comments directly to the db. It doesn't have to click on a post and fill out a form when it can just submit data to the php script.
