There's been a large amount of page creation spam on the MafiaScum Wiki recently.

Here's a (probably non-exhaustive) list of accounts responsible:

https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... tions/ADAM
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... atondon123
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... /Nehaknsl7
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... ikejack456
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... ons/Abhhii
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... ns/Sahilss
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... /Ankit1234
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?ti ... Devidewill

They've created a very large number of pages which all need deleting by a wiki admin. It'll be worth looking for any other accounts that are being used for this, too. (I strongly suspect that they're all the same person, possibly editing from compromised IPs rather than their own computer.)


I'm an admin on a non-Mafia-related wiki that's been attacked by the same spammer. (I'm pretty sure that it's a human who solves the CAPTCHAs, at least, which would explain how they managed to register an account on this wiki despite the account creation process being done on the forum). Here's a spam filter rule that seemed to help against the attack in question in the past (I haven't checked whether it would help against the latest attack):

Code: Select all
old_size = 0 & article_text rlike "1[^0-9]8[0-9][0-9][^0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][^0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]"

The spam situation on the wiki is now completely out of control; there are some spambots that have been posting junk new pages for weeks.

I've been {{blockme}} tagging all the spambots I can find; all the pages they created (now likely into the thousands) will need to be deleted too. Note that some {{deleteme}} tags have gone unseen for weeks: the last spam cleanup appears to have been by Kison on 6 December 2017, but there's now been enough spam buildup since that deleting it all would take hours.

I'd recommend that the site staff appoint a new wiki admin to help clean this up. I'd also recommend installing some anti-spam extensions if you haven't yet; something to mass-delete page creations by a user, and an enhanced spam filter such as AbuseFilter that can be used to prevent the page creations via regex match.
