There’s this visitor on my website ( http://firstain.com/ ), who is there on one page only since about 14hours running now. I’ve kept my eye on him since 14hrs so can guarantee that. Could be more also.
His IP: 126.96.36.199 – static.theplanet.com
The page he is stuck at since 12hrs or so:
The page gives a ‘Page not found’ error.
Who the [moronic explicative] is it? What the [moronic explicative] is he doing at the same 404 page since 14 hours running? That’s more than half a day now…is it a bot? A spammer? Some hacker?
I contacted my webhost (Hostgator) and this is what they replied:
188.8.131.52 is the IP of the server you are on. Wp-cron.php is about the number one script in wordpress that causes unnecessary load on servers. This particular script is used for certain wordpress tasks, such as trackbacks and link checks. I would personally recommend just disabling it by changing the permissions of the file in File Manager to 000. But it appears this was already done. You can block the server’s IP, 184.108.40.206, through IP Deny Manager. However, if it causes an issue with any other plugins, you may need to remove the entry.
Now i don’t mind doing what my host said but i don’t want any side-effects from it.
So, please just help solve ‘this mystery’ for me. As soon as you can. Thanks.
