My blog has been PWNED
So looks like the lower kced one [lco] .. Yep, I just got NAILED with BLOG SPAM last night, and it wasn't from the API either. It's a great spam too.. encouraging people to spam the sh1t out of public newsgroups a minimum of 200 times each so that they can 'honestly' make money. There's a bunch of biblical references in it and actually reads a lot like that "A Simple Plan" or "Three Simple Steps" commercials on XM Radio that target Christians (whether or not the mechanics are the same is another issue, they just resemble each other as far as the sales pitch goes).
So I guess you'll fall into one of two camps on this: A) lower kced one tipped off the blog spammers and taught them how to do this B) lower kced one pointed out the vulnerability and warned that this was going to happen b/c it was within reach for most developers with the determination to pull it off. We all know where I stand on this one.
Now, I'm guessing that I will have the joy of spending 10-20 minutes a day cleaning the crap off of my blog which is going to be fun. And the best part is that, well, if they've beaten the CAPTCHA, then we get all the fun of 1) Having to deal with the CAPTCHA often not letting you post 2) Cleaning up SPAM. Maybe if the Senate would pull their collective heads out of their a33e3, they could do something about SPAM instead of putting stupid warning labels on video games. And this is one issue I actually think warrants the death penalty on. B4STARDS
