Trac spam

One of my projects at work is fully opensourced so I made the trac site public, which was fine for a little while and then the spammers found me.

I didn't realize how badly my system was spammed as it seemed like they went out of their way to hide the spam. There might've actually been a preference for closed ticket, there certainly were a fair number of spam blocks that were hidden as div style="overflow:auto; height: 1px;" blocks.

To prevent future spam I had to block all non-developers from editing the site, mostly because I don't have a good way of creating user accounts for random people.
