    I had some failed login attempts from several different ips yesturday that go back to amazonaws.
    Should I block that ip?

    Hey @retrochansmith,

    It’s a personal preference, but you really don’t need to block every IP Wordfence catches. They could actually be legitimate IPs just being used in attacks. There’s only so much we can do to prevent attacks, it’s more about making sure they aren’t successful which it sounds like Wordfence is doing.



    I figured out what it was. I forgot I had a site that has small programs that can post to your blog when you post a new video to youtube. I forgot I had that setup and turned it off.
