A rude spam attackThursday, March 15, 2007 at 4:02 | Posted in Blogosphere, spam | Leave a comment
My friend Peter writes that his other blog Fabriknahrung was last night exposed to an extremely heavy spam attack. The attack was carried out by thousands of IP addresses in Asia who attempted to pollute the blog with more than 26.000 spam comments during the night.
Interestingly, some of those comments were in German which causes some speculation. Could it be that this cowardly action was initiated by food industry or somebody running a cook book or kitchen site? Did they consider Peter’s blog as competition to their own business?
The attacked blog has an interesting collection of posts about all aspects of food, nourishment and related topics. I did know about its existence but had forgotten to subscribe to the feed. That error has now been corrected. Needless to say that the blog is as from now in my dynamic blogroll.
