Link Spam

I have a website that is a neat php application. I wrote it myself and loaded it with about 3000 harmonica related links.

It has a Add-a-new-link function. I am getting 20 or more spam links a day. The interesting thing is that they look like they are genrerated from different IP addresses. There is a trojan out there that does nothing but post links.

My spam sensing code has has only let one piece of spam through in months. That was written in Italian, and now I look for italian spellings of drugs. Is there any money to be made in spamming about overseas drugstores?

My task for today is to change the URL of the addlink program to avoid this trojan for a while. I will make it a parameter driven item so that I will not have to change the code again.
