WikiAudit is a tool that given a Mediawiki wiki location, and set/range of IP addresses, produces a report of the edit history from those IPs. Cheap heuristics try to identify malicious behavior. Useful for network admins and conducting security investigations.
The primary location for more information is the WikiAudit page on English Wikipedia.

|Open Wikis and the Protection of Institutional Welfare||Andrew G. West
|EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research, Research Bulletins||English||7 February 2012||Much has been written about wikis’ reliability and use in the classroom. This research bulletin addresses the negative impacts on institutional welfare that can arise from participating in and supporting wikis. The open nature of the platform, which is fundamental to wiki operation and success, enables these negative consequences. A finite user base that can be determined a priori (e.g., a course roster) minimizes the security implications, hence our discussion in this bulletin primarily concerns open or public wikis that accept contributions from a broad and unknown set of Internet users.|
