A "visitor" saving entry couple of times per day?

Postby streeff » Sat Oct 11, 2014 4:33 pm

I looked at the dashboard of a PivotX site that I'm moving to a new hosting company and saw this message (pic below) in the log:
4-8 times per day, the message "A visitor saved entry XXX " appears. This is certainly not my client, and besides, he would be indicated by his name.

Should I worry and/or take action?

Some more info:
- PivotX 2.3.10, MySQL,
- at time of writing with safe mode on,
- but as soon as the DNS changes kick in it 'll move to a hoster without safe mode.
- The new install is a clean PivotX install with only the templates and the database moved.

Oh, that message. It means that a non logged-in user is doing an action causing the entry to be saved. Normally it means a spammer posting (or trying to post) a comment.
