    Your site comes up clean via SiteCheck. Can you explain it a little better? Are you getting comment spam or is your site sending out spam?

    If you want to control comment spam then consider installing these two plugins together.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cookies-for-comments/

    They work well together and can reduce the comment spam you may be dealing with.

    Hello Jan,

    Thanks for reply. No, I’m not talking about comment spam. My webhost person, told me that your site is sending (Mod_security triggered) messages. It means that either your system contain virus or something else. I’m using my other wordpress sites from the same computer but nothing happened. It happen only when I try to access dashboard and the webhost server ban my ip automatically and after that I couldn’t even browse the site. If I change the ip by restarting the broadband router, browsing of website again starts but as soon as I try to access dashboard, my ip got banned in webhost server. I asked the reason from the representator, he replied that your site or ip is sending too much spam. I’m using the other my wordpress site from the same ip and same system. This occur only with above mentioned website.

    One thing more, this started after I upgraded to wordpress 3.4.2 from 3.4.1.
