We have a hidden folder on our server, using a long and unguessable name. Bing has found this folder twice now and every time we change it, it re-finds it. The Bing bot is shown in the web server logs.
This folder is not in any file, not in a htaccess or in a sitemap, or anywhere. We have scanned the server for the string. It does not exist.
How can Bing find this folder? Is it possible that a process on the local PC is reporting URLs back to Bing? This seems the only way, and if so would be a serious prvacy breach.
Anyone got any comments?
