/docs/CHANGELOG.html hack? (3 posts)

    I've been getting quite a few requests lately for a page that doesn't exist on my site, nor in the WordPress package as far as I can tell: /docs/CHANGELOG.html. I'm guessing it's a clumsy hacking exploit, just wondering if anyone else is seeing it in their traffic logs and if any sort of security patch is necessary for WP. I can't find much on the Web about this; near as I can tell, it might be a breach for ExpressionEngine sites.

    My blog also received it around 14 hours ago. The visitor came from Romania.

    We have two sites that started seeing page requests for /docs/changelog.html around 3/18.

    http://www.allbusiness.com
    http://www.articlearchives.com

    We don't use WordPress, or ExpressionEngine.

    At this time, we've accumulated about 6,000 bogus pageviews from this source.
