I've noticed in the last day or two that I've been getting referees from google with people searching for that specific string.

Now when I see that my first thought is that it's due to 'hackers' looking for potential targets due to a new php-nuke exploit.

My games site for some reason is number one on that string from google, but I don't have that string in META or page content.

So two pronged questions, why does my site show up with that search and is there any newish 'major' security exploits currently going the rounds with php-nuke sites?

I read the ultramode.txt thread is that a possible reason for people searching?

Not certain, but I've seen this for months now.

So it's not a new thing. Maybe 'cause I somehow appear at the top now that I've actually gotten referrers now. Oh well I'll keep an eye out.

It's nothing new. Hackers will exploit all known phpNuke sites, and search engines are the easiest way for them to be found. I've had a lot of them searching for the phpNuke copyright and other strings that are used. Really just have to stay vigilant.

Should there be a string blocker to stop such known hacker searches?
