I have a hunch, which the other jabber.org admins don't necessarily
agree with, that this is related to conflict in Syria. Most of the rooms
that various attackers are interested in have names related to Syria
(e.g., English or Arabic versions of Aleppo, Homs, etc.). This would be
consistent with other activities I've seen (various people claiming that
they used to be admins in these rooms and now need to be given admin
But, of course, I might be mistaken.
