Despite logging in successfully, I can Not ask a question nor add to any forum. I’ve read the instructions and I’m told to click an ‘add new’ button that is not there.
My problem is this:
I updated to 4.9.6 after backing up, as was suggested.
Then I got about 350 spam posts to my blog.
I think that all WordPress sites that updated were so targeted. I’ve seen a lot of c..p posting, but never at this volume. It was too fast to be manual, and several IP addresses were involved. I think there’s an alternate TOR being used.
Any ideas about this? I’m tempted to simply .htaccess the top level IP range for every spam I get.
