[Plugin: WordPress Firewall 2] WP Firewall 2 misinterpreting GoDaddy SiteScan activity
The plugin treats said activity as SQL Injection, WP-specific SQL injection, Directory Traversal, etc. attacks. Moreover, it interprets the same scan routine differently every day, in all cases generating hundreds of email alerts. Since SiteScan uses dynamic IP, there’s no way that I can see to proactively whitelist or otherwise prevent this behavior. Finally, I could get nowhere with the techs, since the plugin being compatible only up to WP 3.05 was sufficient for them to not investigate any further.
THis is very problematic, since without a solution I have to decide between deleting the plugin, stopping all email alerts, or leaving things as they are – but none of these are acceptable.
