I have noticed that DDG, Bing and Yahoo (although never Google) occasionally display the "wrong" meta description for some of my pages.

I have a hand-coded site which also includes a Wordpress blog "bolted-on".

For some search queries DDG, Bing and Yahoo will display
We have detected an increased number of attempts to access this login page. To help us keep this website secure, please let us know that youíre not a robot by entering the text from the captcha below.

as the meta-description for non-Wordpress pages.

I understand a page with this message is displayed on the WP admin login, but how does that affect the non-WP part of my site?
