  • Plugin Author WFSupport


    Greetings all. We have a point release for Wordfence today, version 6.2.4. Please update as soon as you are able.

    • Improvement: Scan times for very large sites with huge numbers of files are greatly improved.
    • Improvement: Added a configurable time limit for scans to help reduce overall server load and identify configuration problems.
    • Improvement: Email-based logins are now covered by “Don’t let WordPress reveal valid users in login errors”.
    • Improvement: Extended rate limiting support to the login page.
    • Fix: Fixed a case where files in the site root with issues could have them added multiple times.
    • Fix: Improved IP detection in the WAF when using an IP detection method that can have multiple values.
    • Fix: Added a safety check for when the database fails to return its max_allowed_packet value.
    • Fix: Added safety checks for when the configuration table migration has failed.
    • Fix: Added a couple rare failed login error codes to brute force detection.
    • Fix: Fixed a sequencing problem when adding detection for bot/human that led to it being called on every request.
    • Fix: Suppressed errors if a file is removed between the start of a scan and later scan stages.
    • Fix: Addressed a problem where the scan exclusions list was not checked correctly in some situations.

  • BROKE my entire web site …. need instructions to manually remove the plugin completely as I cannot even get into wp-admin.

    PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Unknown: Failed opening required ‘/var/www/mysite/wordfence-waf.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/share/php’) in Unknown on line 0″ while reading response header from upstream, client:

    Please urgently need instruction to completely remove this manually as you have broken a very important web site now from the auto upgrade this morning. I run 28 other sites on the server and they all updated but the update on this one site completely stopped the site working and now only 500 errors. PLEASE !!!!
