Are these hacking attempts?

I just checked my analytics report for yesterday, and an odd URL has been visited...again.  I started seeing URL visits, that a customer wouldn't be navigating to about 6 weeks ago, and have kept of the off-track visits. This is only the 3rd time this one was visited, and if ti follows the pattern it won't be looked at again.  I'm curious if this is some sort of GoDaddy maintenance, or if someone if probing for a weakness?  It's Saturday, so I can't talk to GoDaddy until Monday.  Just curious if any of you have seen odd URL visits.

 

The url they try to access is /c2/echo/?path=/tm

 

I average ~8,000 visits a month, and out of those ~10 are to URLs unrelated to my product menu or company info.

 

Since payment collection/processing is handled by a 3rd party, what can a hacker actually do?  I know they could change prices, images, and product descriptions for the mere fun of it, but I have backups for that.  Am I missing anything?

@Cliffb56 Have you discussed this with customer service? It seems this could be pretty serious so I'd be calling them for help.

 

Also, since this is a security issue, it should really be posted under the SSL and Security section of the Community. Maybe you will get answers there.

Thanks, I appreciate the insight and where I should have posted it - it seemed like it could go pretty much anywhere.  I spoke to Support, and they told me not to worry about it.  So now I am worrying about it even more.  Everything is backed up though, so if some bored, socially inept, parents basement dweller hacks into my site (like they did before I moved to GoDaddy) and changes all my product info, I can delete the entire inventory and re-import via my .csv.

 

It would be easier if we could export our inventory once in a while, instead of maintaining a a csv on the side that we have to manually update. But that's the way it is, and to not take the time is a bad choice.
