Spam Subscriber Accounts (4 posts)

    In the last two days about a hundred users have subscribed to my site (http://pakistaniaat.net). All of them look like spam email addresses. Noticing this, I did the following:
    1) Added a plug in that requires a capthca enabled form.
    2) Removed the subscribe widget from my sidebar
    3) Have now removed all front-end registration links.
    4) Changed my WP password as well as my hosting password.
    5) Reinstalled my theme

    But I still keep getting new spam subscriptions. What else do I need to do? I would be grateful for any help.

    Obviously, no one is paying attention to this.

    This is happening to me too. I don't even know where they are subscribing to me from. Its really annoying.

    If you notice a pattern in the registration email addresses (like the same name or domain), you could try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ban-hammer/ which applies your comment blacklist to registrations.
