I’m really happy with WordFence, it has really helped me securing my site.
I have a question about firewall and filtering .
My live traffic shows many wp-login.php and some wp-setup.php attempts from dubious IP sources, coming from ukrain, russia, china, etc who have no business and no interest in my site justifying such activity. There is no blog on this site and no user registration. I have reverted to block all those IPs doing such attempts at wp-login only allowing local regional legitimate traffic.
Question: am I wrong assuming that these wp-login attempts are malicious or is this “normal” traffic ? Why doesn’t the firewall block IPs coming from bots doing this if its malicious ?
Thanks for helping me better understand this
