Dynamic list of Spam Words and CSPAM Announcement

December 15th, 2004

If you use any type of blacklisting for comments in your blog, you need a list of words/phrases/ip addresses that are fresh and prolific in spam. Here is a list of 2000 spammer IPs and commonly used words and phrases out of CSPAM. These are the most prolific spammers’ IPs and the most used spam words.

In order to add this to your Spamwords list in WordPress, simply open the URL, view source, select all, copy and paste into the spam words form in WordPress. This list can be used with ANY blogging tool that has blacklisting capabilities.

I would also like to make some announcements about the CSPAM project. It will be released under the auspices of GPL. I envision CSPAM to work with all blogging tools that support xmlrpc (and a few people already share my vision of CSPAM). An SVN has been setup and the code has been uploaded. There has been a fair amount of interest in the project and I appreciate the encouragement and the flood of ideas that I have received. I am still looking for a couple of developers to work on the CSPAM project with me.

However, before it is released to the public, it needs a couple of fixes (and changes to the code) which I would really like to get cranked out. I would also like to get a couple of people on board that are familiar with MT and TextPattern (among other blogging tools). So if you are interested in Centralized Spam Protection, have ideas and concerns you would like to share, would like to take a gander at the SVN code, or are simply interested in being a beta tester, please email me for further information.

    What about spammers who are spoofing IP addresses, or spammers who are using IP addresses that will later be used by non-spammer?

    I agree.

    Anyway, is that the way the list is supposed to look? Hmmm?

    Errr….. I meant to say this before. Why not have a seperate IP list for those that want to take that route.

    This list is quite useless. WordPress requires every word, ip-adress or emailadress to be one a new line.

    :-) Those are harsh words, have you followed the instructions?

    open the URL, view source, select all, copy and paste into the spam words form in WordPress

    Any way you can remove redundant entries? the te xas – hold em (spaces to keep this from being blocked) entry will take care of all the derivative t-h ones.
