Bizarre 404 errors.. (1 post)

    Hello,

    I am running a WP-2.0.5 blog and log all 404 errors. For the past month or so, I have been noticing that bots from MSN, Ask, Google, and others have been appending function names to the end of apparently random URL's.

    Here are a few representative examples:

    65.55.209.205 - - [16/Apr/2007:01:36:32 -0400] "GET /press/reader/function.array-rand HTTP/1.0" 404 10830 "-" "msnbot/1.0

    65.55.209.202 - - [16/Apr/2007:04:43:46 -0400] "GET /function.opendir HTTP/1.0" 404 610 "-" "msnbot/1.0

    65.54.188.141 - - [15/Apr/2007:19:58:01 -0400] "GET /press/function.require HTTP/1.0" 404 10799 "-" "msnbot/1.0

    Why are search engines requesting "function.require", "function.array-rand", and other such functions? Is this something that I should be concerned with? Does it point to any WordPress-related problems? Please help. I have scoured the web without luck. Any info/insight would be extremely appreciated.
