Best Useful WordPress Comment Security Plugins

WordPress is a most popular open source powerful blogging platform. That’s why it has been a huge attraction to the hackers, robots, spambots and other unwanted exploits. Here ‘re some security plugins to protect your WordPress comment system:

  1. Akismet one the most useful securicty plugins. It checks comments in the blog against Akismet web service to check if they’re spam or not.
  2. AVH First Defense Against Spam block spammers before the content is published by checking if the visitor’s IP is listed in the database served by stopforumspam.com, Project Honey Pot or a local blacklist.
  3. Invisible Defender protects registration, login and comment forms from spambots by adding two extra fields hidden by CSS.
  4. NoSpamNX automatically adds additional form fields to comment form, invisible to human users. 99.9% of all spambots fill these fields and NoSpamNX willn’t save the comment.
  5. WP Hashcash is an antispam plugin. It eradicates comment spam on WordPress blogs also prevents most trackback/ pingback spam.
  6. Spammer Blocker – tired of manually blocking spammers’s IP addresses, this plugin blocks all visitors who posted a comment marked as a spam. For e.g. if Akismet catches a dummy bot who posted a spam comment, it’ll be blocked until you approve/delete his post.
  7. Block Top Spammers displays a list of top spammers’ IP addresses, based on comments in your database marked as spam. It also generates a blacklist for your .htaccess file to block those spammers from your website entirely, thus taking load off the server. You’ll need another plugin (like Akismet) to identify spam.
  8. IntenseDebate Comments enhance and encourage conversation on your blog or website. Custom integration with your WordPress admin panel makes moderation a piece of cake.
  9. Disqus Comment System replaces your WordPress comment system with your comments hosted and powered by Disqus. Disqus, pronounced “discuss”, is a service and tool for web comments and discussions.
