Hack attempt or harmless?

    I installed the plug in “who is online” (thanks Josh, saw similar on your site).

    I just looked at the “whose been online” part in the dashboard and see two entries where they tried to go to the file:

    MyAdmin/scripts/setup.php

    and got a 404 error.

    Is this something to be concerned about? I had a site hacked a year ago and it was a nightmare to fix.

    I have several security plug ins installed…not sure if they are effective or if there are steps I can take to get more secure.

    Thanks if any ideas?

    Thanks Laura… I never even knew that was there.

    The basic wordpress install doesn’t have a directory of “MyAdmin”.

    You are safe in this regard… and that’s all I’m going to say about that 🙂

    Ya they got a 404 error.

    Well I think you are using “who’s online” which I installed.

    But I also installed a different plug in “who IS online” and that one shows much more data…check it out and compare, both are cool.

    How did you get it to show the nice map on the right side?

    I’ll def check it out!

    The link to “Map of Visitors”?

    I mean how you have the map showing current online users in the right side of your live page, not in admin. That map is nicer than the Who IS Online one IMHO.

    Ya I know what I need to do since I’ve disabled everything I don’t want to use…I’ll just get in the habit of using pagelister instead of the native WP one 🙂

    Ummmm… I don’t see a map anywhere on my site… lol. I see a link in my “Who’s Online” widget which, when clicked, will pop-up a map of users.

    Oh weird…I could of sworn I saw just the map itself in your right side…humph. Nope. Saw it somewhere I think.

    I think you can add it to the widget.. but I didn’t.

    Probably a bot, fishing for doors that were left open.
