Wordfence Launches New Security Feature: Real-Time IP Blacklist


Click to enlarge

We are happy to report that Wordfence has just launched a new security feature for its premium customers – real-time IP blacklist! This new feature will work to block thousands of malicious IPs from hacking your WordPress website. This will significantly cut the risk of your site being hacked and will lighten your website load times and improve site performance as well.

Over the past year, the developers at Wordfence have heavily monitored, collected, and analyzed data from malicious hacking attempts on WordPress websites. They were able to use these results to build a new security feature that will immediately find malicious IPs and block them instantly.

When a potential attacker is blocked from the website that is using Wordfence, this is what they will see:

If a legitimate visitor gets blocked, they are able to report the false positive by clicking on the “Report Problem” button and then copying & pasting the encoded text into the report. The Wordfence response team receives the report and responds quickly to record and fix the false-positive.

This new real-time IP blocking feature enhances Wordfence as it works to prevent attacks. If an IP that is on the blacklist attempts to get access to your site, it becomes blocked from your site permanently and immediately. This means the malicious attacker can’t access anything on your site or use site and server resources.

Keeping your website secure is one of our top priorities and we couldn’t be happier with this new feature from Wordfence!

Popular plugin, Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights, fixed a bug in their upgrade routine that caused the manually set google UA code to be unset.  On Wednesday, we fixed the configuration for hosted sites where we manage the Google Analytics account. Not all hosted sites use this plugin. If you manage your own Analytics account you should verify that it is still collecting new data after 2/18/2017, if not, you’ll need to re-add your UA code in the plugin configuration. (we prefer to manually enter the UA code, by clicking on the link directly underneath the Google Authentication button)  Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
