More Known Trackback Spammers

Since I began utilizing the blacklist feature in my blogging software, I've been having little difficulty with trackback spammers. As quickly as they appear, I zap 'em! If you are having a similar problem, check your blogging software or features that your blog service offers to see whether you can do the same.

I'm offering an update to the blacklist of trackback spammers I provided on 13 May 2007. New entries are highlighted in bold.

ljnl_com
lqoi_com
mtqk_com
top_addfreestats_com
www_boogiebrown_com/wp-blog/
www_jvlo_com
www_vztl_com
www_zjxszx_com

When adding the above to your own blacklist, substitute a dot (".") for each underscore. I used underscores because I do not want these showing up as active URLs in this post, which is a follow-on to Known Trackback Spammers and Trackback Spam - A New Battleground for Bloggers.

The first three domains on this updated blacklist all utilize the same registrar, ESTDOMAINS, INC. The registrant has cloaked themselves through Privacy Protect (a company which may or may not operate out of Wellington, New Zealand) so that they can prey upon unsuspecting webmasters with impunity. This represents one more case of anonymity on the Web being used by criminals to shield themselves from discovery.

Known Trackback Spammers

Since I discovered that my blogging software has a blacklist / whitelist feature, I've been kicking hell out of the trackback spammers. If you are having a similar problem, check your blogging software or features that your blog service offers to see whether you can do the same. Prior to my discovery, I complained about one trackback spammer, who mysteriously disappeared several days later. It is far easier and faster, however, to simply blacklist them within your blog if you have the capability.

To get you started, I'm providing you with my current blacklist of trackback spammers. Here it is:

top_addfreestats_com
www_jvlo_com
www_vztl_com
www_zjxszx_com

When adding the above to your own blacklist, substitute a dot (".") for each underscore. I used underscores because I do not want these showing up as active URLs. Never click a spam trackback link to investigate it; I did this once and spent three solid hours cleaning the viruses and adware that it spewed out, some of which managed to breach both my firewall and antivirus software, off of my computer.

I'll post a revised list as new trackback spammers appear. I hope this helps some of you out there who are pulling hair as you try to stop these scofflaws from littering your blogs with trackback spam.
