There was a disturbance in the wiki last week. Not only did the plague of "Anonymous" postings continue, but the distribution of daily "Confluence changes in the last 24 hours" alerting email messages stopped due to a Confluence email server error around February 19. I believe we have fixed the daily update message error and this blog post should be listed in the one going out at 6:00 pm CST today.
As for the anonymous edits, Atlassian senior engineers have “located another case which has the same behavior on Confluence. They have compared this and the other case, locating a similarity with some external plugins, such as the Forum plugin… We have noticed that all pages which anonymous are editing are created as Topic inside this Forum plugin. We do believe that the issue might be caused by some external plugin editing the page (archiving maybe) and leaving the last modified blank, since no user edited the page. Confluence assumes that anonymous modified the page.… We do believe there is no hacking happening and the source of the editing is related to an external plugin, although we haven't replicated that yet.” Now we just have to get rid of the annoying email messages in a better way than restricting the PIUG Space to those who login in.
If you are not watching the PIUG Space, you may have missed this activity in the PIUG Space due to the absence of the daily update messages. Of course, you could also have seen this information already on the Dashboard or on the main PIUG Space page.

Dear colleagues Is anyone else apart from me seeing old PIUG wiki postings re-emerge on their news feed? I am seeing postings from 2009, 2012 etc coming back up again. The only thing which seems to have changed is that "Anonymous" has edited the page.
