    I have a suspicion that this may slow your site down. Within your /wp-content/uploads folder you’ll find a sucuri folder, and within that, a blacklist and a whitelist folder. This contains a set of files showing the IP addresses of the good and the bad. I found several hundred files in the blacklist folder!

    Isn’t there going to be a performance hit if the plugin is reading in this folder every page load? Wouldn’t it be faster to put this information into a text file or the database? (It is possible that maybe the plugin is doing a php file_exists() call for the IP address when a page request is made– I haven’t checked.)

    Nope, not at all. We do exactly like that (a file_exists) for the IP address, so it is a quick operation. Plus, we only do it for wp-admin access and not for normal visitors (GET requests).

    thanks,

    Thanks for the detail! Is it possible for me to change the name of this Forum Topic for you, then? Sorry!
