Simon Scatt -- a plague on security blogs

I get comment spam all the time and just remove it. However, one little spammer is really starting to piss me off.

Those who read the comments section of this blog will routinely see this post by “Simon Scatt” (I remove it usually within a few hours):

He has three links in this comment spam:

http://download(dot)softsecurity(dot)com/1/14/prvkbd(dot)zip

http://elias(dot)trap17(dot)net/security(dot)php

http://download(dot)softsecurity(dot)com/1/14/prvkbd(dot)zip

His posts come from IP 213.179.251.29.

I checked with Chris Boyd over at Vitalsecurity and he’s getting this troll as well. Chris believes that Simon is actually hand-crafting each comment spam — it’s not being done by bot.

I don’t know what this PrivacyKeyboard is or what Raytown Corporation LLC is but I would strongly advise against having anything to do with this company, product, or Simon Scatt for that matter.
