New version of wordpress anti-spam plugin announced

Reported by: HistoriCUSS Owned by: Ross
Priority: Medium Component: Tech
Keywords: wordpress spam Cc:
Sensitive: no

Description

Just a headsup...

says Russell:

"It blocks automated comment spam systems by using JavaScript and cookies, apparently most spammers can’t handle that. Before I installed it I was getting hundreds of spam comments per day even with the block spam by math plugin enabled. Now I’ve had it running for 24 hours without any spam. The real advantage of this is that now when a legitimate comment gets flagged as spam I’ll notice it, previously I was deleting hundreds or thousands of comments at a time without reading them."

These days enabling the default Akismet plugin is probably a good start otherwise try to keep up with the ever changing list of anti-spam plugins: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/spam/
