Is my WordPress site being hacked?
I’m getting some users visiting non-existent pages on my site, but I think they’re attempting to hack it.
One of the 404 visits I see in my analytics is:
My site is sumeetjain.com, so that’s okay. A long time ago, I had a directory called treasures, so that’s okay. But a Google search for that text file at the end of the URL string returns a bunch of hacking-related websites.
I don’t understand any of the contents of the text file (I went to it directly to read into it.), so I’d really appreciate someone’s assistance. I suppose my main questions are:
1. Is this a genuine attempt at hacking?
2. Should I be worried, or is WordPress secure?
3. If WordPress isn’t secure, what can I do to ensure it’s not hacked?
Obviously, I can’t stop people from trying to hack by entering the URL. I just want to make sure they’re unsuccessful.
Thanks for your time and help.
