I have .htaaccess password protected my directories currently.
As soon as I am removing the passwords, the above downloads/intrusion gets started.

There is no need to post 3 times in the AM hours within a 4.5 hour spread. When we wake up and drink our coffee we will respond ;)

If you do not have htaccess that prevents access to those files sure people can view them directly. I dont think someone's hacking you but a spider viewing your files

did you meant htaacess to data and uploads area ?

Yes block hotlinking and the sorts but I dont think there is an issue with some on your site reading your files.

alrite I am using this code posted here:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://([a-z0-9-]+\.)*techarena.in* [NC]
RewriteRule /* http://%{HTTP_HOST}/gallery/index.php [R,L]

But my gallery can be accessed 2 ways:
http://gallery.techarena.in and http://www.techarena.in/gallery/

Can you help change the above quries better way ?
Thanks again omegatron.

P.S. I removed the .htaccess password protection on my gallery, now again i see those nasty crawlers hogging around :/
