  • the same problem 🙁

    Same problem. Some kind of phishing scheme?

    Can a mod/pro please reply? Thanks!

    Not only is that file costing a lot of hits, it’s also taking up a lot of IORead and thus creating a lot of CPU usage. Is there a way to optimize this file? Please help.

    same problem! anyone from WP support team can actually give a hand here???? thanks for your help.

    This is causing me a headache as a hosting company as it it using resources and bandwidth, is there a cure for this issue ?

    Same issues here and I’m eating the resources of a VPS, not just a shared hosting account!

    What am I missing??

    Anyone found a fix to this? I had my shared hosting account suspended today because access to this file was chewing up too much CPU resource.

    I have no idea how to fix this!

    Please all try applying this change to admin-ajax.php:

    This will ensure that it exits as quickly as possible if there is no action supplied.

    It would also be good if you could check the webserver access logs and see if the requests on the file are arriving with no action or with something in the query string.

    thanks Peter



    this /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php is actually being indexed as can be seen when i do a site: search.

    signing into googles webmaster tools shows this “page” doesnt have a Title tag…

    what the???

    Can someone tell me whats up? do i need to do a clean install? (ouch) orrrrr




    Try Joost de Valk’s Robot’s Meta plugin –

    set it to not index admin directory.
