I discussed about Akismet Plugin in my article 5 ways to guard your blog/web site from spam comments. However, some erroneous claims of vulnerabilities were spotted in 2.5.3 version of Akismet plugin. WordPress bloggers who were bugged using Akismet Plugin will be elated to know that the several flaws related to security of this plugin have been fixed.These flaws have been fixed in the latest Akismet 2.5.6 version.
You must know that this fixed version of Akismet Plugin is compatible with WordPress 3.0 or higher versions. It was noticed that many claims of vulnerability in the 2.5.6 version were false and were attempted without informing Akismet.com. Now, there won’t be any chance of any security flaws in the improved version.
At present, Akismet is offering you three plans for proper security of your site from spam. You can go for the Enterprise, Pro and Personal plans. Enterprise plan will provide you multiple site access at a cost of $50 per month, while the Pro plan will provide a single site access at a cost of $5 per month and Personal plan will offer you access to personal blogs at a cost of $0-$120 per year. One thing common in all the plans offered by Akismet is ultimate reliability and speed in full protection of your site or blog.
