Story is…after optimizing my WP site to the nth degree especially for security and reducing server load, I found my Contact Form 7 getting useless spam posts just 2 days ago and my existing Honey Pot solution was ineffective in this instance. The posts were a coordinated multi IP and email address attack.
I installed Zero Spam….it immediately started blocking this spam attack and today the attack has ceased. According to the easy to read Zero Spam log charts…the attacker first reduced it’s frequency and then gave up entirely. At least for now. My CPU server shows no sign of resource usage beyond normal. I am impressed, relieved and grateful.
I hope that the development of this plugin somehow stays alive because I would would gladly donate or make a one time payment.
