Counterize
[resolved] IP address not showing up (2 posts)

    I've noticed that some hits from China, Indian and the Netherlands have been trying to find my login URL. I assume they are trying to hack my website. How can I block them with Counterize?
    No IP addresses are showing up in my Counterize Dashboard. What do I need to do have the IP addresses show up?

    Thanks!
    P.S. This plug in is great!

    Hi,

    Counterize doesn't block IP addresses.

    I am also under attack and I personally use a combination of those plugins:

    - Bad Behavior (allows only "good behavior" user-agents)
    - Custom Registration Link (modify the registration link)
    - Gab Captcha 2 (captcha for the comments section)
    - IP Filter (block or grand access to the specified list of IP addresses)
    - Limit Login Attempts (great plugin that prevents brute force attacks on login page, and sends mail when it happens)
    - SABRE (Protects the registration page, but seems to be less and less effective)

    It could seem extensive, but remove any of those plugins and you will get attacked and/or spammed.
