Spam/Hack attack on a Java User Group

Just another report from the trenches. A recent message from a Java user group mailing list:

it appears that our fun little wiki site has attracted spammers from holland
and russia. their favorite mechanism so far appears to be to create bogus
accounts and upload html files which contain spam.

I am running daily reports and swatting them as I find them. In the meantime,
if anyone finds anything else I might have missed, pls let me know.
