Those of who have websites may know what I mean. In the last few days, my anti-hack program on my site has rejected about 40+ attempts. Normally it is about 1 or 2 a week. It's not like my script involves anything controversial, secret or a threat to anybody or anything like that. It is simply an innocent website. Fortunately I have an excellent no-hack program, so far nobody has been successful. One time 2 years ago my site was either attacked or otherwise spammed or harmed, mostly it seems by machines or folks who attempt to guess my user name. With a correct user name, they could then send a request for the password. Not trying to "plug" the security plug-in, but it is Wordfence on Wordpress administered by Bluehost. I built it myself and there are no ads, popups or whatever on it. It seems that the latest attacks are coming from Vietnam this time around. What do these folks or machines hope to gain? It's not like I have a hot site that a hacker could make a lot of money off of by plugging something. Or is there another motive or purpose? it has been accessed over 100,000 times but only by about 4,000 or so times by real people.
Any guesses or opinions, whether right or wrong, informed or uniformed would be appreciated.
