Over the past few days I’ve been getting a new species of comment spam. They’re meaningless strings of numbers and letters, often without links. I’ve been calling it GUID (globally unique identifiers) spam because that’s what they most resemble. Here’s a sample:
Website: 811b4a322b04 (IP: 188.8.131.52 , TE01.techentrance.com)
URL : http://811b4a322b04.us
If you visit that URL, there’s apparently nothing there. Seeing as there are no links or keywords, what are they trying to accomplish?
A lot of is coming via Tech Entrance, a hosting company of no apparentl fixed address.
