That appears to be a hack attempt.

I think it is only an issue if you are running a version prior to 5.x (like 4.x). Assuming you are running one of the later versions, you are likely okay.

Exactly as WB states. Someone trying to exploit an old exploit

Thanks, a bit concerned it was a new exploit.

Yeah the problem I have with these security sites is they publically display the exploits to everyone which makes fools come along and try and break into peoples sites
