Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security » recurring Sept 11 attack ???

    I thought this was interesting in a strange sort of way.

    First, I noticed Wordfence had stopped a number of attacks on one of my sites. This was the message:
    Blocked for Malicious File Upload (Patterns)
    The second thing that was strange was the IP addresses were in the US. Usually attacks come from, well stranger places.
    So I did a search for this attack and, again strangely, found an entry on this support forum of this attack on someones site exactly one year ago.
    wordpress.org/support/topic/recently-blocked-attacks/
    Thanks Wordfence for stopping it. Wonder if it repeats next year?

    Hi @eburden,

    Attempts to hack a site by uploading a malicious file are very frequent and I haven’t found any evidence suggesting a specific recurring attack on that particular date.

    In your case, did the attacker attempt to upload the exact same files as the ones specified in the topic you mentioned?
