When Spambots attack...

Monday, February 13, 2006

Since the middle of last week FeedBlitz has seen a significant uptick in spambot related activity. These bots are automated scripts that trawl websites submitting bogus email addresses. As a temporary measure, FeedBlitz has been tuned to become much more aggressive in dealing with apparent abuse, which may from time to time cause a real account to be accidentally flagged. If you think this is the case with your account simply call into support and it will be taken care of. A more powerful long-term approach is in the works and ought to be in place prior to this evening's run.
