Time to take pause from programming and do a quick upgrade to the blogs. Looks like someone is trying to do bad things. Alright. Everything is backed up. Next step, remove users that are obviously malicious. I have turned off allowing users to register since I don’t currently use features that would ever require you to be logged into RealityMe. If I accidentally deleted your account and you want to be registered at RealityMe just let me know. Deleted 40 megs of data that had accumulated in wp_sk2_spams and wp_sk2_logs. I have 52078 comments in wp_comments marked as spam constituting roughly 34.1mb. I can find no dependencies between the wp_comments table and any other data so those comments are being deleted. As an aside, I have 3770 comments that are approved constituting 1.8mb of data. I used "delete FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_approved = ‘spam’" so if your comment was inadvertently marked as spam and I didn’t catch it, my apologies. My final step today is to upgrade from 2.6.2 to 2.6.3.
