High Loads from XMLRPC Attacks

Are you noticing highload on your server? This could be due to XMLRPC Attacks. We recommend reviewing your logs so that you may add the offending IPs on the server’s firewall. If you do not want your server’s firewall list to grow, another option is to edit your .htaccess file with the following.

<Files “xmlrpc.php”>
Order Allow,Deny
deny from all
</Files>

We recommend a combination of both since they may return to attack your plugins and themes folders.
