    Hello,

    I have been using your plugin on 12 websites. We has an issue yesterday
    where our sites were unavailable all of a sudden. Researching the issue
    showed that your plugin was the problem. Log is below:

    +++++
    
    The sites are being delayed from the wp-security-scan plugin trying to
    connect to geoplugin.net
    wp-content/plugins/wp-security-scan/res/inc/WsdLiveTraffic.php: $infoUrl
    = 'http://www.geoplugin.net/json.gp?ip='.$ip; You can see here where it
    tires to connect to the ip of 87.255.51.44 which is for geoplugin.net:

    Hi

    I think I got the same issue. Did you find a workaround?
    Thanks!

    Wow, 10 months and no response from Acunetix.

    I get this problem from time to time as well. GeoPlugin's service intermittently takes forever to respond, which backlogs all of WordPress.

    This geolocation functionality can be disabled by turning off the Live Traffic feature on the Settings page.

    Acunetix, why is it calling GeoPlugin during normal WordPress page serving? The Live Traffic functionality is in the admin interface.
