A new version of the WordPress plugin AVH First Defense Against Spam has been released today.
This release adds a new feature to stop spammers.
The changes made in this release:
- Added security to protect against spammers directly posting comments by accessing wp-comments-post.php.
- An email can be received of a spammer trying posting directly. The email holds a link to report the spammer at Stop Forum Spam ( an API key is required).
- The black and white list can now hold ranges besides single IP addresses.
- Some small improvements and bug fixes.
More information can be found on the AVH First Defense Against Spam page.
