Strange "Hack" message

Post by Angel-girl »

This appeared today in my cbox on site. Personally, I feel it's just some jerk trying to be cute, but I figured I'd ask here because you are are all smarter than me.

Code: Select all

google bot
automate message : this website is shit : automated text ; password hack : status 1ping 2ping 3ping ; password file accessed ; http://www.alphabet-city.com/phpBB3/adm/index.php?sid************************ ; password processed ; mail to password directory ; £££$$£@mail.com . Website hack ; completed.
So far I've seen nothing wrong with the site. I ran the IP address and it turned up in the UK somewhere. I banned it in my cbox and the site in general. Any ideas?

In which case, it's indicative of nothing malicious. Just a bot of some sort (or a user thinking they're cool) filling out the form.

That was my suspicion, especially since it's time stamped about seven hours ago, and nothing's happened thus far. I just thought I'd check in here since someone here was likely to know more than I.
