Smile thanks Raffy - I should have said trying to register (I base this on the tmxxine wiki behaviour)

I hope eventually that users can register without asking permission - and that is just a temp measure Smile

I am geting this when trying to edit a page on the wiki

Code:
Query failed: DELETE FROM wikka_referrers WHERE time < date_sub(now(), interval '30' day) (Can't open file: 'wikka_referrers.MYI'.
(errno: 145))


Anyone else?
Also a user called CamelCase added spam to the CamelCase page (that is a new twist) I reverted the page Smile

Though I'm not certain it's the exact text, I got a similar response last night when trying to utilize the search feature. Several minutes later I tried again and was greeted with the appropriate wiki search page. Weird.

The main wiki page is now displaying this:

Code:
Query failed: insert into wikka_referrers set page_tag = 'PuppyLinuxMainPage', referrer = 'http://www.puppylinux.com/', time =
now() (Can't open file: 'wikka_referrers.MYI'. (errno: 145))


refresh and it displays again.

It's a table error in MySQL that could be repaired via the control panel, which only Barry has access to.

Or servage.net admins can do it for us, but their customer is still Barry.

Cool have sent Barry a message - the repair process is automatic, so should be simple enough

Hope so Smile

This bot is using a genuine sounding name (with the same name as the page)
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/CamelCase

(have left the page unaltered to show that the page is not genuine editing)

Please remove the user CamelCase
Has the wiki been backed up?

This may herald a new form of abuse
Please keep an eye on 'recently updated' (top of wiki)
The only posts where user and page name should match is personal pages

I will (with apologies) be deleting some of these 'personal pages' that are only two lines or seem like 'tests'

If anyone feels like putting some kindly suggestions to wikka developers that their security needs updating and a major upgrade is overdue . . . that would be useful (remeber wikka is free - no one is entitled to development work - play nice)

http://wikkawiki.org/HomePage

We are two versions behind (in terms of wikka software) but I am using the latest wikka at tmxxine.com and experiencing similar problems to the puppy wiki

Smile

cool. thanks, i see now.

it's "spam via a twist of spew".

looks like an ingenius effort to get the google bot to bump their page rating (on some page up the pyramid) via lots of "link to's" on random forums and wikis.

google bot says, "WOW THESE MOFO"S GOT THE BITCHENIST RING TONES AND standing tall!!" DAMN!!!

CamelCase and similar company were long gone - it's safe to delete those "poisonous links" now.

phpBB has a feature that substitutes phrases for some words.

Smile

Wiki seems OK again
If there are any pages that you think need deleting (for what ever reason) let me know Smile

Many thanks to everyone helping to sort this. We get wiki attacks aprox once per month. A bit of spam on pages, which I revert. It is normally a two day attack. This one extended to a third day and so required a bit more attention Smile
