Hey.. so I just installed wordpress on a domain I _just_ registered, which hasn’t been used anywhere or told to anybody or anything.
Within a few hours, my default first post had three of those poker spams on it!
My question is not really about the spam itself, but rather how did they find my WordPress installation so fast?
Is there some sort of public registry of WordPress installs that every new install pings or something? These spammers very clearly have a list of all WordPress installs, and they get it updated as soon as a new one is installed.
