Just been checking my site visit stats and one of the search phrases used to find my site was "shopexd.asp" is this hackers trying to find sites??? As i know they used to search for shopadmin.asp if you didnt rename it.

Im a bit worried now ive seen that.

Cheers,

I'd like to go into detail for the purposes of all you real merchants/developers out there, but wouldn't want to because hackers'll be using the forum to gather more understanding of things too.
the answer to your question is yes, although it's not exclusively hackers; it might also be someone trying to gather/create a spam mail-list of vpasp users.
as long as vpasp security advice is followed and you keep patches up to date you'll be ok.
the main thing is a secondary admin pwd; that'll stop 99% of them being able to get in even if the other patches aren't applied.
