    In the file listing in WP Cache I noticed a bunch of odd URLs, which were all like this:

    http://www.wildmind.org/blogs/on-practice/buddhas-view-on-prosperity?;DECLARE%20@S%20CHAR4000;SET%20@S=CAST0x44454 ... 437572736F72%20AS%20CHAR4000;EXEC@S;

    where ... is a long string of numbers and letters. Anyone know what that's about?

    Looks like somebody was trying to hack your site. I'd clear the cache.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Otto. Any idea what they might be trying to do? Or steps I could take to protect myself?

    I get those char...set attacks all of the time.

    There are plenty of threads about them floating around here. The general consensus is that they aren't worth worrying about - provided you have taken all of the generally suggested security measures.
