we have a public JIRA instance that is used by our customers to report bugs directly. Now we want to implement a feedback function in our windows-software and want to use the issue-collector feature to do so.
By analyzing the issue collector functionality, we've noticed that there is no captcha, login, obviouscation or other feature that prevents users from "spamming" the public available interface to create plenty of entries in JIRA.
One you have the URL (by sniffing or using a proxy) you can simple "denial of service" JIRA by creating thousands or more JIRA tickets through the public interface.
Is there anything we're missing that Atlassian has done to prevent that kind of attack?
