Support » Plugin: IP2Location Country Blocker » Blocking attacks

    Hi. My Country blocker is configured to block all countries except Poland in backend and block Canada in frontend. I have Wordfence Security plugin installed too, and i’m getting increased attack rate warnings (cross-site-scripting). Attacks are carried out from Canada IP (192.99.38.186).

    Is ip2location-country-blocker plugin working on different (higher?) level than Wordfence Security? I thought that this kind of attack would be blocked by country-blocker first, not Wordfence.

    Sample logs from Wordfence:

    Hi,

    Both plugins may be using the same WordPress hook. Try to open the IP2Location plugin and save changes. This will trigger a plugin hook sequence change.
