Upgrading to 1.2.4 should be quite easy. We can give you a helping hand 
if you are on #moin irc channel while doing it.

Admittedly, upgrading to 1.3.4 takes quite more time (but when you have 
that time some day, doing an upgrade to 1.2.4 first is recommended).

You can put read-only ACLs on UserPreferences, too. Just don't remove 
read rights or nobody will be able to log in. X-)

BUT: that doesn't help against those spammers creating new pages like 
UserPreferences#preview (odd, but I have seen that often).
