    I haven’t had any success searching for information about this (and I’m not sure exactly what to search on). Could somebody point me in the right direction?

    As long as their failing, it really doesn’t matter. It looks like a probe to see if your site is open to a SQL injection attack.

    Do you have a plugin like WordFence installed?

    I’m not using WordFence specifically. AFAIK I’m not vulnerable to SQL injections, but I don’t really have much experience with this. I’m also unclear what the relationship is to oembed. If you could suggest a reference where I could learn more about this I would appreciate it.
