Spam from 192.168 network on wordpress.com network???

  1. Erh, I was just looking at my Akismet filter. I have a bunch of spams from "d%%s_test%%%@hotmail.com", what's unusual is that several of the spams are logged with an IP address of 192.168.x.x, e.g.

    life insurance | [email redacted] | lifeinsurance.iMegastores.com#0 | IP: 192.168.4.80
    life insurance | [email redacted] | lifeinsurance.iMegastores.com#0 | IP: 192.168.2.4

    (spam text not included).

    while others are real looking IPs

    whole life insurance | [email redacted] | fun.to/wholelifeinsurance#0 | IP: 66.246.82.114

    This seems to suggest something on the internal wordpress.com network has been botnetted, or that someone at WordPress is testing something?

  2. No botnetted :)

    There was a brief period where some backend stuff had to changed and for that time the wrong information was attached.
    The spam did come from outside.

  3. Thanks for the quick reply :)
