I see that the Haskell wiki is running Media Wiki 1.5.4 from 2005. Current version is 1.15.2 from 2010. That five year period seems to include many significant anti-spam fixes and numerous patches for all sorts of vulnerabilities. Migrating through that many revisions might be painful, but should be doable.
