I don't operate a wiki personally, but I'm under the impression this
is happening with increasing frequency on wikis that don't require
login.  Beside defacing, another popular vandalism is to use unsecured
wikis for product advertisement.  IMHO you'd do yourself a favor to
force logins now rather than wait for additional vandalism.
