What is the Fully Automatic Black List system?
The automated black list system (engine) will block the IP addresses of naughty visitors after a specified number of offenses. It is best described in the blog release here.
After reading the above blog article, some important points to note are:
- It is enabled by default when you install, activate, upgrade the plugin
- It is available from v4.10+ onwards
- You can turn it off by setting Offense Limit to 0 or by turning off the Block Bad IPs/Visitors module
Note: Block Bad IPs/Visitors module also gives you the ability to analyse and manage blacklisted and whitelisted IP addresses.
