Fun with flooding

A really funny guy who signs himself as “Fuck yeah, FlatPress!” exploited FlatPress’ lack of a comment flood limit and/or a moderation queue to bomb many blogs with his message:

get a life

Maybe your Atom feed is broken because I tried to subscribe but always got errors.

(or a variation on this theme)

Classic joke, man!

The following horrible script will delete any comment containing the string “Fuck yeah”, so be careful with that. IT WON’T make any difference whether the string is in the CONTENT of the comment or in the NAME, so think well if you have a comment you want to keep with that text.

Upload it to your blog root, browse to it, and then delete it

<?php
include 'defaults.php';
include INCLUDES_DIR . 'includes.php';
header('Content-Type: text/plain');
if (!user_loggedin()) die('Please login to FP first!');

class deldel extends fs_filelister {
var $_directory = CONTENT_DIR;
function _checkFile($d,$f) {
if (is_dir("$d/$f")) return 1;

$p="$d/$f";
if (false===strpos($f,'comment') ) return 0;
$string = file_get_contents($p);
if (strpos($string, 'Fuck yeah') !==false) {
	echo $string, "\n";
	unlink($p);
}
return 0;
}
} 
$a=new deldel;
$a->getList();
