Attack IP not listed in visitors

  • Twice now I’ve received an email notice that a hack attack was occurring (set to 25+ attempts) on a client’s WordPress site, but when I look in their visitor IP list for the month, it’s not listed there. This has only happened in the last few weeks, I think. I’m wondering if this might be related to the upgrade to WP 3.8?

    Is anyone else having this problem with this plugin recently? Or am I the only one who looks in the visitor stats for the full IP so that I can block it?

    Daniel if you could please look into this, I would really appreciate it. I emailed you about this about a week ago but never heard anything more.

    Thanks in advance!

    What’s the “visitor IP list?”

    Hi Daniel,

    I’m referring to AwStats (in cPanel) where it gives a list of the IP addresses of the visitors during the month. Since I wasn’t getting the full IP address in your notifications, I am usually able to find the full IP address from the AwStats list. However, twice this month I could find no IPs in the AwStats list that started with the 3 segments in the IP address in the plugin’s notification.

    Does that make more sense?

    How soon are you looking at AwStats after the email is sent? Some hosts and programs have a lag between when the hit is made and the log data is made available.

    I just checked again for an attack IP that I was notified about this past Monday and I still don’t see it in the list.

    This is something you’ll have to debug.
