?1-23+3:0:25= in stats

    I have a site that uses html pages and also has a wordpress blog attached.

    In my stats I'm seeing a lot of page where people are typeing ?1-23+3:0:25= after the page name in the URL and coming to the site. Last time I seen something similar it was someone trying to hack into my wordpress blog.

    What information is someone trying to get by doing this?

    example: http://www.alohanaweddings.com/?1-23+3:0:25=

    Is there a referral Url for where those page hits are coming from? Or are these direct hits?

    I may be wrong, but it just looks to me like an attempt to bypass anti-spam or captcha most likely.

    It looks more like a date timestamp. That is what I thought when I first saw it. It is definitely not a captcha thing, since it is not appended to the comment.php Url.

    I am thinking it is a referral from some website which is attaching that to the Url. Innocently of course. It is probably some bad coding from the referring site. It could be a spider with errant coding also. If the referral host is from Amazon cloud computing, this is most likely a stupidly coded spider.

    best I can tell these are direct hits. I'm getting a bunch of them with different numbers.

    Really the person is missing all together. While I do have a wordpress blog further in the site this is happening on static html pages not on the wordpress pages. I was thinking the person might be using an automatic script to hunt through the site to see if they could find a way in and didn't realize they were hitting html pages and not php

    Your right. checked the number sequence. Month-day-time and they happened on the day that fits the sequence. and they are referrals, or at least all from one site, I haven't been able to find the link to my site on the referring sites page.

    But, at least it is likely not a hacker.
    Thanks
    for looking

    True that, not a hacker. It is just a script running to pump referral Urls into your tracking software. Theory being that some of the less informed are thinking that these people are linking to them.

    I would just ignore it, unless they are hitting hundreds of pages a day. In that case, block them.

    Someone managed to hack into the blog and set up spam pages in the past, so I watch for odd links. Got the latest wordpress but you never know when there might be another vulnerability.

    Thanks for the help
