    I just received following email:

    A host, 157.55.32.142(you can check the host at http://ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/157.55.32.142) has been locked out of the WordPress site at http://www.wwefansnation.com until Saturday, May 4th, 2013 at 2:35:24 am UTC due to too many attempts to open a file that does not exist. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary.

    Possibly a hacking attempt. What did your host say?

    @in Aachen hmmmm....understood...thanks for helping...

    @krishna I thought the same when I received this two times. I migrated this blog from Blogger, with lots of old links.

    BTW, it's not advisable to use the firewall plugin as it is not updated or maintained for over two years. Look at the warning box at:
