    Hi,

    I’m seeing this show up in logs and concerned there might be an exploit that has been found. I haven’t come across this before now.

    “/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/inc/cache/6caabda42788e7aaaf360656bba84ed2.php?ask=echo%20\’xx23423\’.\’2xxcv3\’.\’dcfxcx2xdf\’;die();”

    Thoughts?

    Probably one of your site got hack and the file got randomly put into the plugin. WP-PageNavi doesn’t have the inc folder. Here is the folder structure https://github.com/lesterchan/wp-pagenavi

    Hi Lester,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    The site these logs showed up in doesn’t have WP-PageNavi installed at all. This shows up in Mike Challis’ Visitor Maps and Who’s Online logs for that site. I’m guessing they are looking to see if the plugin exists and if it does, if it is infected (?).

    I do, however, have it on a couple of other sites. Will check them to make sure they aren’t infected. Had no indication they are though.

    There were a number of logs showing this same thing. Looked like bots were actively/randomly looking for that.
