The Wordfence plugin saves information about recent attacks on your site. You can view this data on your Wordfence Dashboard and the Wordfence Firewall page.

Firewall Summary

The Firewall Summary shows the number of attacks on your site that the firewall recently blocked. The summary includes three types of attacks: Complex Attacks, Brute Force Attacks and Blacklist blocks.

A complex attack is when a visitor makes a request to your site that is specifically crafted to exploit your site or find a vulnerability they can later exploit. Firewall rules block these types of attacks.

Brute force attacks are username/password-guessing attempts. These attacks intend to log in to your WordPress admin.

Blacklist blocks is the number of times an IP has been preemptively blocked from accessing your site altogether.

The premium-only Wordfence IP Blacklist watches the behavior of IP addresses across Wordfence installations on the web and immediately refuses access to IPs that are currently engaged in malicious behavior. Read more about the IP Blacklist.

Total Attacks Blocked

You can also view Total Attacks Blocked to see any attack spikes across the entire Wordfence Network as well as the activity specific to your site. If you perceive that you are getting more attacks than usual, you can use this chart to see if that’s something that’s affecting more WordPress sites than just yours.
