Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Logged HTTP request

    Hi,
    I installed the log HTTP requests plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/log-http-requests/) and was supprised by a request made by wordfence. The HTTP request URL begins with: https://noc3.wordfence.com/hackAttempt/?...

    Is this a normal HTTP request that is done by wordfence? I am a bit allergic for the word ‘hackAttempt’, that’s why:)

    Thanks

    Hello @wzshop and thanks for reaching out to us!

    This is part of the “Wordfence Security Network”. When brute force attackers fail to log in, the IP’s reputation is checked on noc3, based on other sites that are reporting failures from the same IP.

    It’s a completely normal request that you can disregard.

    Thanks again!
