Who Is Attacking Your Website: Wordfence image

Learning WordPress Security Threats with Wordfence & CloudFlare

Learning WordPress Security Threats with Wordfence & CloudFlare is aimed at security-conscious WordPress Administrators. It collates security threat data from Wordfence and WordPress. It provides suspicious ASN data for CloudFlare restrictions.

This page started as part of Learning Wordfence with CloudFlare. Originally, I tabulated all security data together for CloudFlare processing. Now, I’ve split the bad and suspicious IP addresses here, retaining good authorized user data in the original page.

Learning Wordfence with CloudFlare

Learning Wordfence with CloudFlare is aimed at webmasters who want high levels of security without restricting authorized users.

This is a group learning exercise. Nobody yet knows the absolute best way of managing Wordfence and CloudFlare together. In this extended exercise, we consider the best way to produce guidelines for webmasters. There is no time limit on this exercise. It is likely that I will use this group discussion to produce interim guidelines. Then we can continue to refine best practice in the usual way.

Please note that this discussion is about managing Wordfence together with CloudFlare. I cover the individual services in other lessons. Please ask in Shrewdies Internet Forum about either of those services in isolation.

First Resource: Website Hosting or Internet Access?

Update: I have closed this project. I’ve merged the results into a new security learning project: Learning Wordfence with CloudFlare.

My first Internet Resources are related to ISPs – Internet Service Providers.

You cannot start a web business without an ISP. Strictly speaking, you can start researching your web business offline. But, you cannot seriously commit to running a web business without a reliable provider. In edge cases, you might, for instance, simply rely on your smartphone and social media. I will help edge cases in the forum, but here, I’m concerned with the majority.

This is the start of a major project. I am identifying ISP’s, then grading them in the Internet Knowledgebase.
