Questionable referrer

    This appeared under my list of referrers - http://158.28.226.47:15871/cgi-bin/blockOptions.cgi?ws-session=707129321.
    Is this a breach of my blog security? I don't understand what it means.
    Blog url: http://realhousewifeofaiken.wordpress.com/

  2. No, that wouldn't be a breach of security. A Referrer is just the URL location of where a visitor clicked a link to visit your blog, like http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/questionable-referrer-2 would appear if they click your blog's link above.

    Nothing malicious can be done via a Referrer.

    My best guess is probably someone's personal webmail or feed reader hosted on an IP instead of a domain name.

  3. Thanks mac, I guess the "blockOptions" part kind of unsettled me a little. I'll now try to get my paranoia under control . :)

  4. You're welcome!
