Why am I receiving request with h/randomNumber.html

by Paul Thompson   Last Updated September 14, 2018 12:04 PM

Recently, I've been receiving request spikes from requests of the form

example.com/h/<randomNumber>.html

Each time the random number is consistent (per 24 hours). On Google analytics I'll suddenly have 300% of my usual entire site traffic directed to a URL that I've no idea what it's attempting to direct to. When I go manually it 404s.

My question is, is this a known hack that indicates that my server is compromised in some way, or otherwise is this something that crawling bots might do?
