xyz like spam is back
Here’s a representative sample. They are not only “liking” my blog posts, but my comments on other people’s WP blogs.
The blog I need help with is poweredbyrobots.com.
Thanks for the report. We’ve seen this on some of our own blogs as well among staff, and the issue has already been reported internally.
We’ll update here when we have more information.
Same happening to me
I’ll keep watching. Thanks, Esme.
Spam likes are happening to all my comments also, as well as my comments on the blogs of others.
Yeah, I just had a massive rush of them. Glad to know it’s been flagged, will keep watching for an update
Thank you all for reporting this. We’ll keep you updated!

This is happening to my blog as well. Recently I set up a rule to block suspicious email followers that include @outlook.com in their address. These nuisance trolls are following me to legit blogs I’m following as well as comments on my blog. I have sent a list of 25 of them that hit me this morning through Support. Thanks for any help.
(my blog is: tailsaroundtheranch.blog)
The spammers are after our personal information, ie email addresses, phone numbers, location and whatever else. Remember the facebook thing?
Good to know you guys are onto it, I was targeted 39 times today and reported it.
I so understand the frustration, I was hit on likes on many comments I left on other blogs 39 times, ( PS.. I happen to have a legitimate outlook email for my WP site alerts updates .. So it is unfortunate they are using this email link.. )
They’ve been replying to comments on my blog for the past several weeks and as of today are now Liking my comments.
I am getting a lot of spammers lately, and today they are not leaving stupid comments with links etc., but they are liking posts. How can I block them? Here is one of them – id995697.sexyjyyn.website – I need help to be able to block these people. I have a free wordpress blog.
The blog I need help with is rymcovenant.wordpress.com.
Here are the spammers who came onto my blog today –
Got some spam Likes on my blog comments today too. From comments I posted:
I know there are/were more spam Likes on comments from my blog visitors as well, but I wouldn’t be able to tell how many unless I checked every comment. :-D I’ve disabled Comment Likes for now and am following this thread for updates.
Can you please get rid of these spam “likes”!!!! hit me as well. Tried to filter out but they are all through today’s “Likes” xyz is particularly awful
I just made the topic about this as well. Users/sites like: id7524090.sexyfnuz.website, id9119381.tltopt.xyz or id3664738.sexyrkwebsite are trying to make you click on the comment in order to inject some trojan/malware script into our sites.
All the spam likes are still showing on the comments on mine blog. And also on my comment on another blog as well as all the other comments on that blog.
My blog is https://blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com
The xyz spammers have now developed a scheme where they can be seen by the public, which I’m thinking is what they wanted all along, but failed as spam email followers and commenting “what?” Blog administrators can delete spam followers, and their comments go into spam, but we have no way of undoing their “likes:, and the handles are an embarrassment.
The Gravatar names and their associated handles are;

I’ve disengaged likes for comments until this is resolved.
