Funny email from a reader, that I figured would make a good post:

This is a funny redirect. I get one or two visits a day from teenage gangsters trying to enter my server by checking if a wp-config-file exists that is no longer the newest version. I got best panic results by linking to the Russian IT-Counter-intelligence Agency.

NOTE: You should NOT use this if you are ACTUALLY using WordPress. Also, I updated it to the FBI since that Russian site went down.

Redirect 301 /wp-config.php
