spam on ubuntu wiki

Bug #201368 reported by Przemek K.
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu Website - OBSOLETE

Bug Description

The Ubuntu wiki is getting more spam lately.
See the RecentChanges page and look for massive page attachment addings. All the attachements are similar - files with text and links to porn sites. All are uploaded (mostly) by the same user: Gera76ru.
The spammed pages look like simple user pages. All of them contain russian word "Опишите" ("describe").
I've deleted them, and the attachements, but they keep coming back!
These pages were:
There might be more of them.
Something should be done about it.
Probably the above mentioned users should be deactivated, deleted or banned.

This isn't a valid bug for the ubuntu-website project - as explained on the -doc mailing list, the correct way to deal with this is simply to request that the user's account (and it seems just to be a single user) be deleted: either on #launchpad or on - I note that Przemyslaw has already done this. I'll close the bug.
