yep, for the past ~2 weeks...been observing a spike (using tail -f )
in POST requests made to ~/wp-comments.php on my installations.
mod_security has been busy issuing 412:precondition failed errors for
matching filters, still there are dozens of keywords/phrases that go
through, hopefully those using Akismet, SK or Bad Bahavior will have
an added layer of protection - less database pollution. :)
