Are these crawler visits actually hacking attempts?

Hi

I have CrawlTrack and one day it said that it tracked visiting by GoogleBot visiting the following files on my website:

  /wp-login.php
  /old/wp-login.php
  /cms/wp-login.php
  /blog/wp-login.php
  /blog_old/wp-login.php
  /blog-old/wp-login.php
  /blog/wp/wp-login.php
  /wp/wp-login.php
  /backup/wp-login.php
  /blog/backup/wp-login.php
  /wordpress/wp-login.php
  /wordpress2/wp-login.php

But the thing is I don't actually have such files (so the crawler found 404 error). They all seem to be login places of various programs like wordpress, none of which I am involved with in any way.

I was wondering whether these could actually be hacking attempts by some person disguising as a GoogleBot?
Or am I paranoid?

Thanks

Hi,

I think you are right, it's look like somebody disguising as Googlebot looking for Wordpress login; certainly not for good reasons.
