The corruption can easily be fixed by checking the changes done by the
spammer in the bug's history and undoing them. Otoh, the spammer can be
banned from the Administrator page if you're an admin. I fixed both
things yesterday when I read your email.
Let's hope he/she was just a lonely wolf and we don't have to deal with
more of these. Anyway, let me know asap if you see more.
