I've noticed an increase in spam attacks targeted specifically at Typo.

I opened Ticket #848 because although I had Typo set to block
trackbacks they were still getting through.  I think this is because
that option only applies to anything *after* you set that value.  I'm
not sure because I had a lot of legacy posts from other systems.  I
just ran a quick SQL statement to make sure they were all turned off
though.

As for #848 I'm not sure it's a defect now ... more like a 'use'
question.  So it probably doesn't need to be fixed.

If yo want to make sure trackbacks are turned off, just run this in
something like phpmyadmin

UPDATE `contents` SET `allow_pings` =0

See ticket #860 http://typosphere.org/trac/ticket/860 for a patch which
adds a new setting "Allow pings for blog". Disabling this should stop
trackbacking spam for the whole blog. The existing option for the
trackback default value only sets the default value for new articles in
the advanced options (allow pings). This can be toggled per article.

This seems like rather an important feature...  What are the chances of
the patch in #860 getting applied?

Thanks,
