    Getting several 403 errors triggered by WF Firewall since Oct 19 for a page with an entry form that includes an image upload field, example below

    xx.xx.xx.xx - - [19/Oct/2016:00:19:59 +1100] "POST /enter/ HTTP/1.1" 403 226 "" "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 10_0_2 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/602.1.50 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.0 Mobile/14A456 Safari/602.1"
    yy.yy.yy.yy - - [19/Oct/2016:00:20:13 +1100] "POST /?wordfence_syncAttackData=1476796813.81 HTTP/1.1" 200 - "" "WordPress/4.6.1;"

    I’m seeing several other posts here over the last few days with similar issues around file upload so suspecting your firewall is being overzealous around anything involving uploads from non-admins? Please can you confirm this is likely cause?
