I’ve been watching my Feedjit Live Feeds for some time now and I’ve noticed a trend lately. More and more visitors are arriving directly on my “Page Not Found” page. Yesterday, there were even five of them. Should I be alarmed?
I’ve heard about the ghost stories of blogs being hacked. I remember reading about how to put a code that will block access to your site’s directory through a page when I was researching on that topic. I’m not sure if I followed the instructions on that article but if these visitors are hackers wanting to access my site through that page (I forgot exactly the directory referred to in the article that I’ve read), it’s a cause for concern right?
Darn, I need to back-up this blog. Just in case…
UPDATE (August 21, 2011) : My blog was indeed hacked and I didn’t know whether the culprit was my blog hosting provider which has been a constant target of hackers or a premium wordpress theme that I got for free from another website. I later solved this problem by changing my web host to Hostgator and getting a license for my Thesis theme for WordPress.
