New Comment Spam

MacMegasite & WorldBeatPlanet both got hit with a new kind of comment spam I haven’t seen before. I only got two of them at MacMegasite, but I got 6 of them at WorldBeatPlanet. The author, subject, and content consist entirely of a string of hex digits, including the URL, which points to an online poker site. There were several different variants, and the sites were hit with two identical copies of each varient, both on the same story. The two copies both come from different IP addresses, which seem to be open proxies. When I checked the access logs at MacMegasite, I saw there were many failed attempts for the two spams they managed to post.
