No, this looks like regular wiki spambots. I suggest that you add an edit 
password to your wiki, see the page 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PasswordsAdmin .

Then you should log into your server via FTP or SSH and delete the spam files 
from the directory pmwiki/wiki.d.

Look at your page Site/AllRecentChanges to see if there are other spammed 
pages -- you could delete them or if they had some content, revert them via 
the page history.

Lastly, the page SiteAdmin.AuthList contains a list of all protected pages; if 
your wiki is protected, you should also see any unprotected pages.
