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
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
