Spam attack (7 posts)

    Lately my blog have been under a heavy spam attack.

    I have tried a ban plugin, but it is hopeless to ban them all, if you still want to give public access to your site.

    I have now found out how the spammers do it: the use tracback

    If you have this problem switch of "allow trackback and pingpack"

    Now my problem I have a 1000 articles and gallery pictures, how do I change the trackback status for all my inouts?

    have a nice day

    May be it is possible to do it via phpMyAdmin, enter table wp_posts and change the ping_status from open to closed for all entries.
    But how?

    Start with installing the Bad Behavior plugin.

    The blog, which is under attach at the moment is a Scout webpage, so every comment have to be approved by me before they are published.

    to delete the spam batch is not a problem because that can be done in the administration panel.

    My suggestion of close for trackback is not a solution I have tried on the post that is used for the attack at the moment, but nothing is changed.

    I will take a closer look at Bad Behavior at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bad-behavior/

    since I opened this discussion, 5 hours ago I have received 24 spams with the same content - except for the IP:

    Forfatter: atolcalty (IP: , ip70-185-239-55.ok.ok.cox.net)
    E-mail: iodigointuilm@mymail-in.net

    If I just was able to ban the email adress!

    Just install Akismet and be done with it.
