[Resolved] Anybody else see wp-register.php abuse?
I’ve disabled wp-register.php for now, as I’ve been getting fly-by-night registerings — as in, they POST straight to wp-register without bothering to visit the site first.
I see two possibilities: 1) a security hole, and 2) blog comment spammers, trying to circumvent the “only registered users can post comments” thing.
If it’s any help, they all come with the same user-agent: “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)”.
