Hey, Watch Out: WordPress Blogs Are Being Attacked

Well, they always are. That’s the lovely thing about script kiddies.

So here are two specific attacks I’m running across in my logs:

&h=258&w=180&sz=14&hl=de&start=6&tbnid=IgIMoSnmg_6FuM:&

God knows where the hell this is coming from, but it’s streamed in 9 times on a low-traffic blog over the last few days. I think it’s some sort of specific plugin attack.

The second type:

And this is just a typical ramming nonsense at the server and see if it trips over itself and opens access.

Seal up with the WordPress release, I suspect, or you shall seriously regret….

Off to sleep now. Not operating at great efficiently right now.
