    Seriously?! My own IP address, which is already white-listed, is being flagged as “probing for vulnerable PHP code” simply by clicking the ACP menu “plugins”. I have to FTP into server and kill WP Cerber just so I can see my own plugins page!

    So what is the point of the white-list?

    You have to enable using whitelist in the Traffic Inspector settings. This feature gives administrators more granular control on how and when the plugin uses the whitelist. Alternatively, you can stop using plugins that add malformed links to menus.

    Really? I see no malformed links in the menu and what kind of plugin would even do that?

    Again, what’s the point of a whitelist when certain parts of the system will ignore it anyway?

    It’s off-topic.

    I told you: You have to enable using whitelist in the Traffic Inspector settings.

    I already heard your workaround. I asked you “what is the point of the whitelist?” – maybe you didn’t realize that I was commenting on how this seems like a bug, didn’t understand the question, or that’s off-topic too.

    Thanks for your “help”.

    But you brought it up. LOL. You said “stop using plugins that add malformed links to menus” as if you already know that is what’s happening. Asking you to explain this comment is perfectly reasonable.
