    That or it could be an attempt to create multiple spamming accounts on a forum or CMS setup, that will later login and post spam on threads/comments

    It will only have an effect if your index.php is coded to do something with the 'do' parameter value. Otherwise, the browser will simply display the contents of index.php and ignore the parameter. Or it gets a 404 if index.php doesn't exist.
    Detect file changes remotely. SimpleSiteAudit is an early
    warning anti-hacker system which sends an alert on detection.

    PHP Find Orphan Files - Finds all the unreferenced files on your site.

    Yes it's an attempt to spam. The spam bot will have a list of urls for various forums and CMS's to try to register fake users and and then post spam.
