    I have an Incoming Link from a spam Blogger account:

    http://tadrl.blogspot.com/2007/12/napp.html.

    This site attempts to load software almost immediately, which presumably is some sort of malware. How can I remove this link to my WP site..?

    Could you give us a link to your wordpress.com blog, and tell us where the link appears? Is it in a comment on your blog or where?

    The requested URL was not found on this server. Please visit the Blogger homepage http://www.blogger.com/home or the Blogger Knowledge Base http://help.blogger.com/ for further assistance.

    This is what I see. Did you follow through?

    Here is a link to my WP blog… http://www.mikeholley.net/blog/

    I see it as an Incoming Link on my dashboard but not as a comment anywhere. I have Askimet installed that seems to keep the spam at bay for comments.

    Yes a url would help.

    @mholley
    Did your by chance import your blog contents from Blogger into a wordpress.com blog?

    There’s an extra . at the end of the link.

    I’d actually click it, but as I’m in Windows, I don’t really want to risk it. As most malware targets Windows systems, maybe someone with a Mac or a Linux box might want to check it out.

    We cannot control who links to our blog posts.

    More to the point the url you provide is not for a wordpress.com blog. You are in the wrong forum. We run on different software here and cannot help you. For self hosting bloggers the correct forum is http://wordpress.org/support/
