Once the filters are added the future spam data will be excluded.

 

GA wont re-process past data.

Hi @Vinayak I,

 

Creating the filters that @Vinayak I and @A T suggested are the correct approach for preventing future hits of this type of traffic. 

 

You will need to create a segment to remove the spam from your Analytics historical data since filters only work onwards.

 

The combination of the filters and the segment should be enough to keep clean your data.

 

Hope it helps,
