  • 2.6.3 actually…

    I got a dozen comments, all from 94.102.60.???, they all look basically like this.

    Each had a different name, bogus looking email, and 16 character string of seemingly random letters/numbers.

    Was someone trying to hack the site?

  • It’s not a hack. It’s spam. They are trying to get through your antispam filter to get approved and then post more meaningful spam without restrictions. Once they see their message was actually published they know that they can post more spam on your blog.

    Just don’t approve such comment and delete them (or mark as spam in akismet).
