Control Panel - hack attempt?

Advert test

I've just upgraded to Word Press 2.2.1 and while in the hosting control panel I came across the Login History link. I was suprised to see several IP addresses listed as trying to login to my control panel.

Example below
July 9, 2007 at 22.33 - 194.125.95.187 - attempts=2

There are several other attempts by different IP addresses that look like Irish domains. Am I interpreting this correctly or is it nothing to worry about?

If you're using Wordpress the admin section is always located at /wp-admin , so I'd expect that there probably are both people and bots out there trying to login all the time.

I get SSH attacks on my personal servers every few minutes :)

Actually, it was the main hosting account control panel. Several IP addresses in Ireland over the past few months.
Any thoughts?

If that's the account you have with us please contact security@ with details and we can look into it for you.

I don't think it's anything to worry about - as in I don't think anyone is targetting you specifically, but it doesn't hurt to be paranoid
