Security enchancement against hammering a wiki.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: bredtape

As far as I know there is no protection against someone trying to open multiple edits and submitting them all at once. I can foresee a security risk here, someone could open multiple edits and submit them all with blocks of text, which could eventually cause a server crash or if you are using a shared-host, a max-out of bandwidth or max-out of space.

A simple timer counting amount of seconds between each submit, and blocking things under 10 seconds, for instance...

Thank you.
