We stopped this on our Windows network by enforcing network usernames and passwords to access the Wiki. This worked for both internal users and external users coming in via port forwarding and the firewall.  The server is a humble Win2K box running IIS5.0 .

No Superman tee shirts here now!

  I vote for that! I don't like the idea of needing to use authentication, but one of my network-security guys is highly suspicious of the open wiki environment [available only on our intranet, and only to the IT-department], and posts under other users' names all the time in an attempt to "prove" that the system is vulnerable. 


  he also wears a Superman t-shirt every day.
