2012-01-09 Interesting comment spam pattern
For the hcc!pc gg netwerkgroep website I use serendipity blogging software. Works great, and several blog functions are in use like trackbacks and user comments. I noticed a number of new comments which by themselves look ok, but are very generic comments which could apply to any blog post. The backlink is to something very generic like yahoo, facebook or google. The part where it gets interesting is that they all contain a simple misspelling, and searching for those misspellings shows they are actually probes for comment-forms which can be abused for link-spamming as the same texts are used everywhere. Some samples:Now we know who the seisnble one is here. Great post!The forum is a brgtiher place thanks to your posts. Thanks!So that's the case?
