New hack NukeUserPlugin, created by slinkp

nukeuser plugin

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


A tiny plugin that adds a trac-admin command for cleaning out spammer accounts, and all their tickets and comments.

It requires SpamFilterPlugin.

It does not do anything about wiki content or attachments. Forks and patches welcome.

It does not provide a web UI. Forks and patches welcome :)

Bugs/Feature Requests

Existing bugs and feature requests for NukeUserPlugin are here.

If you have any issues, create a new ticket.


Download the zipped source from [download:nukeuserplugin here].


You can check out NukeUserPlugin from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


To configure it, first you need SpamFilterPlugin installed. Then put this in your trac.ini:

nukeuserplugin.* = enabled

To use it:

 $ trac-admin /path/to/trac/environment/  nukeuser username

(If you use it interactively, it does tab-completion of usernames from the auth cookie table in the database.)

This will do all of the following:

  • Remove the user account.
  • Delete all tickets and comments created by that user.
  • Train and delete SpamFilterPlugin entries by that user.

Motivation: I've been getting some (authenticated) Trac spam lately, some of it getting past SpamFilterPlugin's filters (I'm using all of Akismet, BlogSpam, and reCaptcha, and they still got through). I was getting tired of doing cleanup manually.
