    Hello all,

    I am new to Support but proud to be a WordPress'er.

    I am seeing three weird url attempts in my server logs. URLs are below:

    http://example.com/?p=325++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Result:+chosen+nickname+"ExaxySwanna";+sent+(from+first+page)

    http://example.com/?p=325++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Result:+chosen+nickname+%22ExaxySwanna%22;+sent+%28from+first+page%29

    http://example.com/?p=325++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Result:+chosen+nickname+%22ExaxySwanna%22;+sent+from+first+page

    Would you mind interpret what are they trying to do please? And do I need to get worried about this attempt?

    Cheers

    That is indeed odd. My guess, it's probably a poorly coded bot (could be any purpose, search index, comment spam, hack, etc).

    Just implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures, and you should have nothing to worry about. :)

    Oh, thank you very much. I will apply recommended security measures.

    Cheers
