[Resolved] How can a spambot post comments in a post with locked comments??
Yes, I know it sounds weird, but that’s the truth:
This morning I had to delete several spam comments, caught by Akismet, to this page:
What puzzled me immediately, is the fact that this page has the comments form closed for over a month!
I am sure of that.
Just to be double-sure, I checked the source of the whole page with the post (and you can check for yourself!). You can’t post a comment there, there’s no form for posting comments, nothing.
And somehow, spambot/spambots succeeded to post a comment to this page! (lucklily, caught by Akismet and held for moderation)
How this can happen?
What protection should one use not to receive comments even from posts with locked comments?
I am terribly puzzled…
Any help’d be appreciated! 🙂
