    I’ve been monitoring the Redirection 404s in my site – I get a lot of bots scanning for bad plugins, or site back-ups – I was wondering, if I redirected obviously nasty scan URLs to site.com/?blackhole – would that work? They’re not scanning the site for content but vulnerbilities, and I thought it would be fun to send them to the blackhole. I’m guessing it would need an ID on the end of the URL though for it to work, is that the case?

      Yeah the random query string (WP nonce) would be required in order for that to work. Interesting idea though!

    Dang, that’s a shame. I wonder if I could send them to a page that meta – refreshes to a the URL with the nonce? Thinking out loud. Might be a bit beyond my basic knowledge.

      I like the idea and will work on something for a future update. It may be possible at this point, if you can find a way to get the nonce value and pass it along with the requests.
