Ma Xiaojun (=damage3025) joined a few days ago and seems to have done a lot of good work according to the "Recent Changes". They even have a user profile at Launchpad. That is not typical behaviour from someone intent on causing damage!
The attachments don't show up in the wiki mark-up. The only pictures were the "i" in a blue circle and the signpost
I take it you guys are looking at the html/css of the page? (In Seamonkey web-browser that's
View - "Page source"
Firefox and InternetExplorer have something similar but i've no idea the exact wording in IE)
So i think that the images are not interpreted or "acted on" or anything by the web-browser, it doesn't attempt to display them. So, even if they are infected or something then even on a Windows machine they wouldn't run their payload? Has anyone scanned the image to see if it's anything other than a harmless screen-shot?
I still don't see the problem here. As far as i can tell someone has started doing an edit and then not completed it. They have uploaded a picture but not added the wiki mark-up required to display it. [shrugs]

This again like the last one shouldn't be of much concern, Brian is
one of our rockstars in bug-triage so he is probably working on
something as of now, try pinging him on IRC and get an idea on what's
