Hello. I contribute to http://wiki.archosfans.com

I have noticed that since some months this web site is attacked by "spammers robots".

I wish to know if something can be done by the administrator of this Wiki to try to stop these accounts to register (example: upgrading the software MediaWiki), or if hope is lost.

Examples of spammed pages :
http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?ti ... ldid=60406
http://wiki.archosfans.com/index.php?ti ... ldid=60389

MediaWiki versions (displayed by going to page Special:Version ):
current used : 1.15.1 (2009)
latest MediaWiki : 1.18.2 (april 2012)

I am not 100% sure, and don't know MediaWiki. However I noticed that the updates were targeting a lot of security fixes : http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/News/

This upgrade manual in french may help you : http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Upgrading/fr
