Jesus that sucks, at least you caught it before it got too out of hand. Maybe you could only allow so many account creations per ip or something too. Maybe that'd open up too many other issues, I don't know. Good luck though, the captchas seem like a good idea.

Take a look at this page http://blogs.pandasoftware.com/blogs/pandalabs/archive/2007/07/24/XRumer.as
px and then especially the movie at the bottom of the page.
The best thing you can do is letting new users answer a question during registration.
We've got it also recently on a website were Captcha and email activation did't work anymore and haven't seen any bots again.

I think security always comes first in the piority list. Glad it's under control now and hope it stays that way in the future.
