Vincent,

Although the actual results of the scan were displayed in English in the online html report, the suggested solutions were in fact in Chinese.

Checking my access logs reveals multiple attempts of the same attack/probe, for example multiple identical POSTs to the same page:

216.18.22.46 - - [06/Jan/2010:11:33:01 +0000] "POST /properblog/wp-login.php HTTP/1.0" 200 2554 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) NOSEC.JSky/1.0"

There are around 100 entries identical to the above in my log. I don't know if this is by design or not but it does seem to be a little inefficient.

I also noticed there were no attempts at information disclosure via the TRACE method, nor were any attempts made at SQL injection despite my selecting "all" in the scan options. Not that my site is vulnerable in any way ;-)

Hope this helps

regards
mrx
