I checked my registration table recently and found 3 weird entries. First, this is where someone registers a username and password. The password is generated but encrypted , and an email link must be responded to activate the account , which these were not but it kind of threw me anyway.

This what was in the username field:

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Now, since my site is not totally operational and not really in production I 
gues I still should have put the validation code in anway :)

However aside from my bad behaviour does this type of entry signify an attempt 
at an attack of any kind ?

Yes. Someone is trying to use your registration form for spam and assuming that you're not doing any checks on content.

Check for details on how to stop this from working - it won't stop the attempts but spam won't be sending out from this particular form.

If you want to stop it from happening altogether, you'll need to look at using captcha.
