Security threats in Uploadify

I have a Plugin installed in my WordPress which gives me a nice statistical overview of the blog. There is a section in this plugin reporting “Top Links”. Surprisingly, these are the top links:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Well, number 2 explains that many people are interested in my backend rather than actual content in the blog.

Interesting links are the ones from number 6 onwards! These links just do not exist in my blog; meaning that there are bots somewhere trying to discover these links on the web. In other words, there is a Uploadify thing somewhere which may have some vulnerabilities!! And guess which country is mainly behind these attacks?! Let’s look at the distribution of the visitors of the blog:
