I’ve been getting tons of spam comments lately and am getting tired of deleting them. Today I had to scroll through over a hundred of them and pick out the one or two legitimate comments before deleting the rest. I already have BadBehavior installed, but its not catching any of these, which makes me think that the spam robots know how to get around it.
As an added security, I modified the jsspamblock.php file to change the name of the input field. I figure that it would be easy enough to modify a spam robot to look for this particular plugin. But since I modified the input field, hopefully even attempts to do that will not leave my site vulnerable. To make the same change on your installation, just replace all instances of ‘jsspamblock_input’ with something unique to your site.
