Plugin Automatically Retrieves Originating WordPress User IP Address

WP Security Audit Log is being used by a good number of large organizations, whom typically have their WordPress website installed behind a reverse proxy, a web application firewall or even behind load balancers. In this update we included a new option that if enabled, WP Security Audit Log plugin will automatically retrieve and record the originating IP address of the WordPress user. WP Security Audit Log is retrieving the IP address from a number of HTTP headers as explained in How WP Security Audit Log Retrieves Originating WordPress User IP Address.

Removed the Sandbox from WP Security Audit Log

Earlier on this year we introduced the Sandbox in WP Security Audit Log. The scope of the sandbox was to allow WordPress developers directly interact with the WordPress database and also execute code for troubleshooting purposes. Considering how powerful the sandbox is and how it can be misused we removed it from the plugin completely. Should you wish to use the sandbox contact us so we can provide you with the extension.
