    Hi there
    iThemes Security site scan is blocked by NinjaFirewall:

    Unable to determine if the scan target is allowed: Target site returned invalid response. It looks like the site scanner was blocked by NinjaFirewall. Incident ID: 1451684

    Is there a policy setting that allows the site scan?

    Thanks, Frank

    Did you check the firewall log (NinjaFirewall > Logs > Firewall Log) to see the reason why you were blocked?

    Maybe your plugin needs the AJAX or REST API access and you blocked them? Did you enable the following policies from the “NinjaFirewall > Firewall Policies > Basic Policies” tab:
    -“Protect admin-ajax.php against suspicious bots”?
    -And any option below that is related to the WordPress API?

    Since updating to version 6.5.6 I have the same problem, this should be the reason:

    How do I allow NinjaFirewall to let scan the site? Thanks in advance

    You can disable the “Firewall Policies > Intermediate Policies > Block suspicious bots/scanners” policy.
    Or whitelist the IP using the .htninja script.

    Thanks! Disabling the block suspicious bots/scan is the easiest way, and it works for now. Since its not the best solution I’ll make a study of how to use the script. Thanks again! Lex Salverda.
