I was looking through the 404 errors of my nginx logs today to see what the hackers are trying to do on my website.
I usued this command:
cat access.log | grep '404'
I saw the usual requests for directories like "/admin.", "/backup/", or "/private/" but I also see a few requests like these:
"GET /yatjgmatiak/ HTTP/1.1" "GET /gkjasdhytkaf/ HTTP/1.1" "GET /ukaewlinfsda/ HTTP/1.1" "GET /vankhasgeskl/ HTTP/1.1"
There aren't that many of them (only about 50 total requests) so if it were a brute force attempt at trying to find an admin panel, it would be a poor one.
What do you think these hackers are looking for or trying to do?
