Another SMF forum that I admin on was attacked in the last 24 hours as well.  Recruit more moderators to handle these as they come in and it helps a lot.

The attackers are obviously automated.  The spam messages (from each account) came at precise repeating intervals.

Thank goodness they had the courtesy to mostly post on the off-topic board. 

In any case, I think once they get some success you can only expect more.
