Evil Trackback SPAM – Part II

Can of SpamOnce again, I have victimized by Evil Trackback SPAM. This time, rather than put annoying Trackback links to Porn/Drug/Make Money Sites, the sheer volume of it hitting my server was causing me performance issues. Even with Trackbacks turned off MT still invokes mt-tb.cgi when hit. This happened enough to start slowing the server down, so I've blocked access to that file via the web server.

Now I still get hit, but the server just denies access and continues on it's merry way.

Music I'm listening to right Now:
"I Write Sins Not Tragedies" by "Panic! At The Disco" from the "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out " Album.
