blog being attacked!? plz help

  • Hi All,

    I use WordPress Firewall plugin on my site and the last two days I seem to be getting hit a few times per minute with some sort of attack. 1000s of alerts and growing!

    I think, I’m not too sure on these messages, most are easy to tell what is going on but I’m lost with these.

    Can anyone else clue me in here? Am I being attacked, or is there some sort of misconfig causing this?

    Sample alerts

    So looking at the above:

    I see ‘ozh’ which makes me think this has something to do with the Who Sees Ads plugin (made by Ozh), which it could be, but I also see CFID and CFTOKEN etc and that is Coldfusion which I don’t use on my site. The offending ips are also not mine.

    If anyone has a clue here I’d really appreciate any help you can provide as it makes me very nervous to be getting so many alerts like this!

    Thanks!

  • You’re just seeing the cookies (named wp_ozh_wsa_XXX) that are being set. Nothing related to my plugin.

    thank a lot for the reply Ozh!

    so someone/thing is hitting my site with a coldfusion script and setting off WSAs cookies?

    Just had the same thing happen to me.

    Does this mean that someone did try and hack their way in?

    Thank
