Observation: Many visitors/new members visit FAQ page

Something i noticed lately here on Many guests or newly registered (on our site unlicensed) members go directly to the FAQ page. This is not something i noticed before the recent vulnerability was posted.

Any other 3.8 sites notice the same?

I assume these are bots/humans trying to find sites that can be exploited.

I find myself checking the FAQ's of any 3.8.6 sites I visit. I've sent 2 emails to exploitable boards, one e-mail came back undeliverable and another was an out-of-office auto reply.

I've only had 18 views of the FAQ in 30 days according to google analytics, spiked on July 21 and 22, and yes the search for the database details was in at least 5 of them, 1 of which would have been me double checking.
