WordPress Plugin: Bad Behavior 2

One of the most popular plugins has finally got an updat. Bad Behavior has now been upgraded to version 2.

It’s been a long time coming, and Bad Behavior 2, the next generation of the Web’s premier malicious traffic killer, is finally here!
Bad Behavior, conceived in 2005 as a fingerprinting method for HTTP requests, has proven, as one user called it, “shockingly effective” at identifying and blocking malicious activity, including blog/wiki spam, e-mail address harvesting, automated cracking attempts, and more. It does all of this looking only at the HTTP request headers; for POST data, the content of the spam is not analyzed at all.
