    Nothing new, it's happens to most of the WordPress users.

    I would suggest you install Anti-Spam plugin by webvitaly.
    Since i have installed it, i have not received a single spam comment in 2 months now. (Just in case)

    Uncheck "allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)" under discussion settings in your dashboard.

    or you could take all those comments... search for them to see where they have been approved and use it as a new aa list :) Wouldn't have much value as probably a lot of obl on the pages, but worth a look to see someone elses footprint..

    Very common in Wordpress and Blogger. Replace the default comment box with Disqus and make sure that you check "do not allow link in the comment box". It helped my sites.

    This happened thousand times with me. No need to worry op some guys are spamming with automated tools on your comments sections. easiest way to get rid from this problem. Install wordpress plugin from the below ones.

    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-comments/
    or
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/no-page-comment/
    The first one known as disable comments I use sometimes.

    ...or if you want to allow a 3rd party to take over, I'd recommend FB or Disqus. I personally use Disqus and the conversations are really great on my blog. I used to use FB comments but switched to Disqus to allow some form of anonymity, although not completely, to the users.

    If you don't want any comments at all you can delete this line on single.php
    Code:
    <?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>

    Disabling comments is easiest.

    If you want to keep comments enabled for some reason, there's a free plugin on the WP site called "cookies for comments" that prevents bots from commenting. Just set it to delete them rather than spam them.

    It's brought a few of my WP installs from hundreds of spams to zero, definitely recommend.
