After a late update of SIGE a month ago or so, to the Free 3.4.2 version, I started to see the following in my 404 logs. I get a couple of hundreds of them in 3-4 days, all for different pictures.
[the URL to the page where the picture resides, but not including the name of the picture?!!]<span class="sige_js_title">[Image Title]</span> - [Image Description] <a href="[my homepage’s URL]/plugins/content/sige/assets/print.php
I have no idea on how to interpret the address above, if it’s a configuration error that started to occur after the upgrade or if it’s “someone” who’s trying to find a weak spot in my site. In order to see if the upgrade had caused anything, I upgraded to the PRO version, but the result is the same. Hacker attempts do normally end after some time, or at least comes in waves but this just goes on and on.
Do you dare to guess what’s going on here?
If you believe they are hacker attempts, I would like to get them out of my 404 logs (I use SH404SEF for analyzing these and take remedial actions). Could you the give me a hint on how to configure a .htaccess “410 redirect” so that I don’t break the print functionality of SIGE?
