we got a truckload of spam on jira on our (public) work server until 
they added captcha checks to the latest jira (3.8?). Even with 
trackbacks turned off, we'd get bugreps full of links. The problems were
  -jira didnt do any authentication or email validation before issuing 
an account.
  -it was easy to search for jira installations on the web

in a way, its a success metric of jira: its used enough that its 
worthwhile for link spammers to write software to spam it. But its 
inconvenient to have to purge the entries every morning...the new jira 
release has fixed that.
