We had another Wiki defacement today; this one was a script kiddie rather
than a spammer, who deleted the entire IntroToPeak front page, trying to
upload some PHP to hack into the machine.
I fixed the damage (AFAICT), but I wonder if perhaps we should move to a
"registered users only" security policy. An awful lot of the Wiki editing
that takes place these days consists of spammers adding links, and us
taking them back down. Going registration-only would fix a lot of this,
but at the cost of losing the ability for people to casually edit and comment.
What do you guys think?
