    Hide My WP Security Check: Your site is at risk. WP installed wrongly: one or more of security keys are invalid. Read here for details.

    When you go to the Read here is goes to a bad page at the WordPress site.

    Not sure how to make this go away… But I believe I have the plugin working.

    Please assist.

    Thank you!

    🙂

    ALSO getting a lot of the types of hits:

    I am just banning IP’s or do I have to worry about this?

    Ok – I figured out my Error and issue – it had to do with Secret Key and Salt Settings, which I have remediated.

    So I guess my only question at this point is related to my 2nd image and how many intrusions I am getting going to xmlrpc.php?

    Hi, sorry for getting back late to you on this as it was weekend. Good to know that you were able to solve the 1st issue. Regarding 2nd query, HMWP IDS detects malicious requests coming to your site and notify you about it. But all these requests might not be harmful and you need not worry as HMWP IDS will take care of this and will block the malicious requests if Impact level is more than 20 (default value specified in HMWP IDS). You can stop receiving emails regarding this by setting “Notification Threshold” option to 0 in IDS Firewall tab.

    Note: If in case, valid request is also listed as intrusion then hover over that request name and click on Exclude link to add it to exception list.

    Thank you, Suman. I guess sir the issue that bothers me most is that I have only had this tool on for less than a day and it’s gotten hundred plus hit against the site. This is far worse that the Akismet Spam tool that catches bad posts. I am just amazed and how bad this hits are and wonder why all of a sudden my site is being targeted so heavily.

    Love to hear your thoughts.

    Thank you sir.

    John

    As I mentioned above, all those requests that are there in IDS log might not be harmful requests – https://www.screencast.com/t/oJbxxYbC
