Spam Comments

  • Hello Everyone,
    I am getting spam comments on posts that don’t even exist. How did this happen? It looks like the person wants people to go to a Texas Hold’em poker site. S/he posted comments for post #1 – #7, which don’t even exist. My first post number is 50, I believe.
    I’m wondering if my blog is in danger. Could this person go in and, for instance, delete my post entries, modify them or whatever else?
    Thanks in advance,
    Johnnie

  • My real question was how in the world did this person, persons or bot post comments for posts that don’t exist? Thanks for the link! Now I know that I am not alone with the Texas Holdem spammer.

    This same thing happened to me. I looked at my MySQL database and saw about 30 comment entries for posts that don’t as yet exist. I suspect that the holdem bot runs some scripts that just runs through a loop and submits a bunch of comments directly to the db. It doesn’t have to click on a post and fill out a form when it can just submit data to the php script.
