I just had my first trackback spam on here. It was just a random string of letters to a site that does not exist, but still. According to that page I linked, this won’t be a problem in the next WordPress version.

  • ug. we just got one on Crafty too. I was able to delete it, though… I’m using 1.2.

  • Hehe…I was able to delete it too once I realized I wasn’t logged into WP which was why I couldn’t delete it :) But I got about 6 more…argh. I just deleted the trackback file. I assume that will stop it. Hope the next version is out soon!

  • I went and turned off the ping option in the WP control panel, and then I backed up my database and did this:

    UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status = ‘closed’ WHERE post_status = ‘publish’

    that ought to stop them.

  • I got it on star shaped too
