    Hi. I’m hosted by Siteground and over the past few days something is causing high CPU usage and many hits on my site. Their tech support team have been looking at it today and it seems to be something to do with the Wordfence plugin. They suggested I contact support. They said

    “I am not certain if wordfence is generating the ID’s in order to analyze the traffic or generating the requests themselves. Please contact the WordFence support team to report this and request information if these requests are generated by the plugin, or just being analyed by it.”

    The following are examples from today:
