    There must be a security vulnerability in this plugin, because my 404 log shows it and I have only one plugin: Better WP Security.
    The URL that they couldn't find was /wp/wp-content/plugins/mini-mail-dashboard-widget/wp-mini-mail.php

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/mini-mail-dashboard-widget/

    Not found is hardly a security issue.

    Please note that this plugins isn't supported anymore.

    It is an issue because that site doesn't have this plugin installed, so the hacker was looking for a specific URL to hack, probably to send spam.

    If the plugin is not supported, it should be removed from the repository.
