Hi! I’m running WordPress 3.4.2 on a shared hosting server at Hostgator.com. WordPress runs great and I’ve taken measures to reduce, if not prevent, login attempts from unauthorized parties.
I’ve noticed in the AWStats reports for the site a very high number of refering page to my site that appear to come from other WordPress installation.
Here’s an example of what I’m seeing:
A refering page like these appear in the report and shows the number of times the link was “clicked” to access my site. Also, “wp-login.php” is the most viewed page on the site. 🙂
My question is: do the above refering pages mean someone is trying to use ANOTHER WordPress installation to hack into my WordPress installation? My site is static HTML and the blog is WordPress. It just seems odd that a hacker would be able to use another WordPress login page to somehow hack into my blog.
Thanks in advance!
