I’ve noticed some strange stats generated by WP Statistics plugin, like some visitors getting to the page from nowhere and I’ve decided to check my server logs.
So, I see requests to WP Statistics from on IP address, but with another IP address in params, for example:
[IP1] [DATE] GET /wp-json/wp-statistics/v2/hit?_=[PARAMS]…&ip=[IP2]&…
So I get a hit in WP Statistics registered from IP2 even though request was made by IP1.
How even this possible and why does it happen?
What is the real IP of the visitor here?
