Wikipedia have a minimal security scheme:
"Wikipedia is a WikiWiki, which means that anyone can easily edit any
unprotected article and have those changes posted immediately to that
Even this complex page is left unprotected, and I was able to edit its html
code. I'll check later if my changes are still there, and if my IP address
is listed in:
This vandalism page is interesting; the page about Quebec was "updated" with
some nice thoughts:
In this case, the defacer is not some random chinese wiki spammer, but a
fellow gentleman from Quebec. Go figure...
So the only security is post-publishing review.
