There is a user some 4625 miles away (according to Google) from me trying to hack into my site. He is using a range (not consecutive) of IPs to do so, e.g. guessing the login or trying to access specific files. I went to Live Traffic and clicked on Block IP. This worked for most of the IPs he used but with one, WordFence would not let me do so because it claimed it was my IP. As said, this user is some 4625 miles away and his IP does not look anything like mine. In addition, in the How does Wordfence get IPs section, it says Detected IP(s): and quotes this IP and then says Your IP with this setting: giving the same IP which, I repeat, is not even vaguely my IP. Why is it doing this? And yes I have put my real IP and only my real IP in the Trusted Proxies.
