I have evidence of these '40tman_rullez' accounts being created on 
jabber.sk server for last weeks.
Most of connections of '40tman_rullez' accounts are made from IPs,,

But there are also others e.g.:
ws_conference_jabber_ru41odk__n at jabber.sk
Most of connections of 'ws_conference_jabber_ru' accounts are made from 

All listed IPs are registered in Russia.
These accounts are probably causing also the increased network 
utilization on our server (4Mb/s in peaks).

Let me know if any other information could help you to find the way how 
to fight against this. Do you have any recommendation how to prevent 
these accounts to be created on our server? I do not like to implement 
CAPTCHA nor filtering IPs.
