As far I am aware, this:


is the first instance of spam closing a bug.

Note that this will only happen to bugs that had been closed (and
reopened) before, since this is necessary for the spammers to pick up
the nnnn-done address.  In Debian, this issue had been discussed many
times already, AFAICT without any solution.

There is a very simple solution. Restrict bug closure and other administrative tasks to people on a list of emacs contributors and the original submitter. It is not a perfect solution, but it should deal with the problem of random spammers.
