+Normally ikiwiki requires a valid session cookie of a logged in user to edit pages. It sounds like you may have the opendiscussion or anonok plugins enabled, which allows anyone to edit without logging in. Recommend disabling them.
+
+Since you know the spammer's IP, put it into ikiwiki.setup:
+
+<pre>
+banned_users:
+  - ip(85.25.146.11)
+</pre>
+
+If the user was logging in, you could also put their username in the ban list.
+
+You can also try enabling the blogspam plugin.

+I did indeed have opendiscussion active.  I shall wait to see what happens after disabling it.
+
+The bots seem to make 5 consecutive edits at short intervals (around 2 minutes) using an IP 
+address as a username.  I do not know if the IP is the one from which they work.  There are 
+usually two or three sets of five edits using different IP addresses as username in each hour.
+
+I did try blocking specific IPs but they constantly change.
+
+It would be good if blocking could match a regexp, but as far as I can see this is not an option,

+I can now confirm that this particular attack has stopped after removing the opendiscussion plugin.
