    I noticed the message referred to in the subject line above tonight.

    While I appreciate the necessity for maintenance on sites from time to time, two questions came to mind
    1) during any outages of service as suggested, do subscribers sites become vulnerable (they many not have the protection of Blacklists or other dynamic content monitored by Wordfence)?????
    2) From a security point of view, might it not be better to advise the world AFTER such outages, rather than advise potential hackers beforehand, when security may be at a low point??

    That said, You are doing a great job – and the premium version I use is well worth it – long may it continue!
    Thank you

  • Hi @fingersmorris,
    Our website at http://www.wordfence.com does not affect the Wordfence plugin and it’s related services. I can assure you that we do not announce maintenance in a way that would make it possible for attackers to abuse it.

    Thanks for the support!

    Hi wfasa
    Thank you for your rely, and for clarifying the little issue I percieved (wrongly so it seems).
    I am reassured by your response – keep up the good work
    Julia C.
