    Hi Iulia,

    To disable XML-RPC methods that require authentication I just add this line add_filter( 'xmlrpc_enabled', [ $ob_class, 'sisanu_restrict_xmlrpc_country' ], 30, 3 ); in two places like this:

    		if ( empty( self::$settings['temp_disable'] ) ) {
    			if ( self::$is_pro && function_exists( 'RCIL\Pro\maybe_simulate_restriction' ) ) {
    				self::$simulate = RCIL\Pro\maybe_simulate_restriction();
    				add_filter( 'authenticate', [ $ob_class, 'sisanu_restrict_country' ], 30, 3 );
    				add_filter( 'xmlrpc_enabled', [ $ob_class, 'sisanu_restrict_xmlrpc_country' ], 30, 3 );
    			} else {
    				if ( false === self::$all_countries || false === self::$all_ips ) {
    					add_filter( 'authenticate', [ $ob_class, 'sisanu_restrict_country' ], 30, 3 );
    					add_filter( 'xmlrpc_enabled', [ $ob_class, 'sisanu_restrict_xmlrpc_country' ], 30, 3 );

    and add this new method:

    	public static function sisanu_restrict_xmlrpc_country( $state ) {
    		$restrict = self::user_has_restriction();
    		if ( ! empty( $restrict ) ) {
    			return false;
    		}
    		return $state;
    	}

    to your code and now the plugin is providing protection against XML-RPC methods that require authentication.
    I find this very useful. You can also include an option like Disable XML-RPC for all countries and you can reject any XML-RPC requests.
