Thanks for fail2ban which I just installed from Mandriva. I made some changes on your Wiki site.

  • Your Wiki has been recently open but already (mildly) spammed because of anonymous access. Could fail2ban been used in order to temporarily ban the IP adress of the spammers? It would be great?
  • Your MediaWiki software version is 1.6.7 (http://fail2ban.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Version), it doesn't enable alerts from the Watchlist by email. Shouldn't you upgrade to 1.8.2 or higher. Recent versions have new tables to prevent more from spammers.
