Frequent 404s - thedomain.com/browserconfig.xml (3 posts)

    Not sure if this is related to the latest WP upgrade, but I've been getting a lot of 404s in the log. The page generating the 404 is thedomaindotcom/browserconfig.xml. The common characteristic among the ips trying to reach this non-existent page is that they all appear to be using Windows 6. Is there a way to fix this?

    it could be spams (stay updateed, use difficult passwords that you cant remember!!!) or the site used to have something like that kind of page(haven't seen this page so far!!) if the site used to have anything like that then you can delete it from google webmaster tools if visitors are coming from google search.

    Requests for browserconfig.xml are an abomination from Microsoft's Internet Explorer. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/dn320426(v=vs.85).aspx for details.
