Spam from 192.168 network on network???

  1. Erh, I was just looking at my Akismet filter. I have a bunch of spams from "", 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] | | IP:
    life insurance | [email redacted] | | IP:

    (spam text not included).

    while others are real looking IPs

    whole life insurance | [email redacted] | | IP:

    This seems to suggest something on the internal 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 :)
