    Hi Samuel,
    We are currently adding a whitelist feature and it will available in the next release of this plugin.

    Regarding the IP range vs IP address – hackers rarely stick with the same IP address so it is usually more efficient to block ranges of addresses rather than a single address.

    But you make a good point regarding the fact that it would informative for the admin to also know the actual address rather than the range.

    However due to time constraints we will have to put such a modification on the back burner because there are currently features we are working on which are more important than this.

    Thank you for your kind and fast reply 😉

    I’m glad to hear that whitelist is coming 😀

    About the IP range, yes you’re right that hackers usually doesn’t use only one IP, but in my experience they rarely use more that one IP in the same XXX.XXX.XXX.* range, it’s more likely to see XXX.XXX.*.*

    That’s why I think blocking the actual range it’s not practical and would be better to block only the IP to avoid blocking legitimate users in the range.

    For the time being, what about simply adding the IP to email warning? It’s very easy to do, you simply need to add one line to the send_notification_email, just this:

    $email_msg .= __('IP: '.$ip,'aiowpsecurity')."\n\n";

    Only one second needed to implement 🙂

    By the way…

    If you add a filter hook to the send_notification_email, it’ll be good too and then I’ll do that (and others) modification without touching the plugin code.

    Adding the blocked IP address to the email sounds like a good idea. We will look into that.

    Thank you so much! 😉

    Have you thought about uploading the plugin to Github?

    A simple modification like this could be contributed by me if you add the plugin to Github.
