    Here’s a representative sample. They are not only “liking” my blog posts, but my comments on other people’s WP blogs.

    The blog I need help with is poweredbyrobots.com.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the report. We’ve seen this on some of our own blogs as well among staff, and the issue has already been reported internally.

    We’ll update here when we have more information.

    This is happening to my blog as well. Recently I set up a rule to block suspicious email followers that include @outlook.com in their address. These nuisance trolls are following me to legit blogs I’m following as well as comments on my blog. I have sent a list of 25 of them that hit me this morning through Support. Thanks for any help.

    (my blog is: tailsaroundtheranch.blog)

    The spammers are after our personal information, ie email addresses, phone numbers, location and whatever else. Remember the facebook thing?

    #3129117

    Good to know you guys are onto it, I was targeted 39 times today and reported it.

    #3129124

    I so understand the frustration, I was hit on likes on many comments I left on other blogs 39 times, ( PS.. I happen to have a legitimate outlook email for my WP site alerts updates .. So it is unfortunate they are using this email link.. )

    I am getting a lot of spammers lately, and today they are not leaving stupid comments with links etc., but they are liking posts. How can I block them? Here is one of them – id995697.sexyjyyn.website – I need help to be able to block these people. I have a free wordpress blog.

    The blog I need help with is rymcovenant.wordpress.com.

    Here are the spammers who came onto my blog today –

    id995697.sexyjyyn.website

    id9919654.vidioxxx.xyz

    id1366330.kywvw.xyz

    id5628888.sgdlcq.xyz

    id9222217.tltopt.xyz

    Got some spam Likes on my blog comments today too. From comments I posted:

    id2891913.qcqzpj.xyz

    id7885339.icsas.xyz

    id825874.khhtdq.xyz

    id8082263.leax.xyz

    id9114855.afsx.xyz

    id5105547.paksvq.xyz

    I know there are/were more spam Likes on comments from my blog visitors as well, but I wouldn’t be able to tell how many unless I checked every comment. :-D I’ve disabled Comment Likes for now and am following this thread for updates.

    I just made the topic about this as well. Users/sites like: id7524090.sexyfnuz.website, id9119381.tltopt.xyz or id3664738.sexyrkwebsite are trying to make you click on the comment in order to inject some trojan/malware script into our sites.

    #3129260

    Hi @notdonner and @jackf65, there were some adjustments made to our systems before you posted. See if that has made a difference going forward and let us know.

    All the spam likes are still showing on the comments on mine blog. And also on my comment on another blog as well as all the other comments on that blog.

    #3129324

    My blog is https://blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com

    The xyz spammers have now developed a scheme where they can be seen by the public, which I’m thinking is what they wanted all along, but failed as spam email followers and commenting “what?” Blog administrators can delete spam followers, and their comments go into spam, but we have no way of undoing their “likes:, and the handles are an embarrassment.

    I’ve disengaged likes for comments until this is resolved.
