I let my host know about these types of log entries and they may have done something -- don't know what -- but I have not seen any more of these types of hits for 2 days. But since these types of entries would not find anything like that on the server, they would be getting 404s anyway.
My host uses mod security. Perhaps they changed a setting that would hinder this type of activity.
Thank you for all your help.
