The bot requests the homepage, then requests wp-login.php.Yeah, I found a lot of those while looking up this particular request in logs.
the FF version in the UA is not legitimate.Huh. I never realized that; I though it was just archaic.
Look for a "POST" effort in there.I found a few while scanning logs, but overall they're surprisingly rare. I get more requests for POST to my contact form, for all the good it does them. As ClosedForLunch described, the normal pattern is just root + wp-login.php. The particular request that triggered my original question was different. (Brr. I really don't like intelligent robots. Fortunately they are vanishingly rare.)
