    maybe there is a new vulnerability in wordpress 3.6 and that’s how they’re doing it.

    I know wordpress now switches on XMLRPC access and doesn’t have an option to switch it off any more

    are they comments or trackbacks that are being sent?

    They are all comments. Garbage, babble, Google translate, passages copied from my About and Welcome pages, wiki passages, E! television reviews. Hardly any have in comment links. Most of the websites are 404. They are all bot and old bots at that.

    Here is my latest one from six minutes ago:

    webcam chat

    Altruiste vendeur avec webcam chat . Livraison agile puis paquet soign¨¦. Indulgence beaucoup ¨

    The website is 404. There is no email address. This one has an IP switcher. I get about 50 of these a day now.

    oh dear, not sure how that is happening then!

    not sure what to suggest, all my issues went away with the new plugin on multiple sites

    I even switched it off for a day to see if it made a difference and I got hammered with over 200 comments over night! I switched it back on and it didn’t get repeated

    maybe you have something else going on with another file that has been compromised and they’re using that to inject comments..

    hard to say without knowing everything about your blog and plugins and files.

    You are welcome to the list of what I have if you think you can isolate it. I had all of this before your plugin and all of it quit until the upgrade to 3.6. You can email me. My email is on the Ask Momma page of TheM3Blog(dot)com
