    Hi

    I used an old blog by boastmachine and some hackers used the trackback and successfully hacked into my blog.

    I have removed the old blog and switched to wordpress. Now I find that they are till tring to hack in through trackback.

    Is there any chance that they will be successful? Or should I disable trackback altogether? How can I ban them from accessing my trackback? They are using alot of ips to access my trackback at the moment.

    Thanks

    Is there a script that blocks/ban people who tried to access trackbacks without valid api or trying to acecss trackback multiple times?

    Ok I realise they are trying to target the old trackback.php from my old blog which used another blogging script.

    you can use a spider trap. instead of naming the trap getout.php as in the example, name the file the same as the old trackback file.

    That's just Yahoo indexing your site.
    Install the Bad Behavior plugin. It's great and keeps track of what it kills.

    Not sure why yahoo is indexing so long on my blog on the old address, scanning nonexistance files. I shall install the bad behaviour plugin
