I installed the plugin after my server had reported some malicious activity. Now I feel I am safer!
I have enabled the 404 module and got my 3rd 'Site Lockout Notification' in a weeek. So I visit the log and find a number of 404 errors. Many of them are on google translated pages, which are not true errors. However, I also see a large number of 404 errors on slugs like
and other blog categories, that indeed do not exist, since my blog base is 'blog' se the related content is under
'/blog/latest-news/hot' and alike.
I also check my Google Webmaster tools reports and do not have 404 errors on such slugs.
So I wonder, does that mean these are malicioous agents trying to guess these slugs because they are normal wordpress ones?
Also, I wonder, is there a way to make sure that I do not lock out robots agents?
