I posted this in another section and just now figured out I put it in the wrong thread....such a noob.
I am new to I.M. and have just finished my first site. The other day I got a comment from somebody who said something like, "Thanks for the info, nice looking site. May I ask what WP Theme you are using?". And that was it. Is it possible for someone to hack my site by knowing what theme I am using?

    That's a basic/generic spam comment.

    Maybe the guy just liked the way the theme looked and wanted to get it himself? It's possible right?

    my Wordpress sites get an attempted log in every day. To protect yourself there are a number of good security plugins available.

    Lol, this is spam from people trying to get links from your site to theirs. If they want to know your theme they can just look at your page source and it is there for all tower.
