Thanks for sounding the alarm.

I think I've cleaned up all the spam since the start of the most recent spambot attack (unless they've posted more since). If you see any pages I missed, let the wiki sysops know via {{deleteme}} on a single page, or {{blockme}} on a user who's posting multiple such pages.

Changelog for the past week shows extensive bot activity likely using the wiki to supply fake contact info for companies through google search results.
