We’ve all seen WordPress comment and pingback spam, but thanks to strict moderation regimes and brilliant WordPress plugins that focus strictly on SPAM comments, comment spam isn’t a major problem for most websites these days. I have seen however, a new trend starting to emerge when it comes to spam involving WordPress.
In recent years WordPress has become the go-to platform for people looking to start their own website. It is easily installed and set-up, relatively light on resources, and has a high level of functionality. This feature list is not only appealing to everyday users, it is also appealing to spammers for the exact same reasons.
