What about all these automated tools Wikipedians use like Twinkle or whatever? Seems like those would be a prime way to attack WP, for a skilled hacker.
They don't represent substantial attack vectors unless attackers compromise an administrator account.
But I think you have it the wrong way around. Those automated tools started being used about the same time that new users stopped staying and experienced users started leaving:(Mod note: Split from 'Wikipedia's susceptibility for a hacktivist attack' -Selina)This post has been edited by Selina: Fri 30th March 2012, 5:32pm
