    i was looking for a pix in my upload folder which sits inside the wp-content folder. i was using c-panel and there were quite a few folders up there, like 40. and there were no pix in the folders but spam urls, mostly medicines. how in the heck did someone put them up there. are they doing any harm. should i just delete which is my inclination to do.

    i do get phony registrations and i am not to sure what to do with them. are they doing any harm.

    a book recommended as best practice to upload images outside the root folder so no one can get inside. thoughts?
