Today Heise is reporting about an abuse of a pingback function in wordpress for DDoS-attacks, here:

description of the problem in english by the security company here:

I would like to know, if s9y could perhaps suffering the same.
Perhaps someone of us askes that security company to check s9y as well? and you developers would get the result without such report?
Could this problem report perhaps help the coders to understand how a kind of special spamming, which our blogs are suffering from, is functioning?

That is not the typical security problem. There is no solution without deactivating pingbacks entirely, which I can't imagine anyone would want.
