3) Security: Brute Force- Whitelist

The backend of the blog(s) are secured with an IP Whitelist. Only registered IP addresses can log inWe need to check that this Whitelist works.


Test if different IP (not from IP list) works for login

  • Step 1: Login into the server with a Whitelisted IP on one browser
    Step 2: Delete own IP address from the White List
    Step 3: Try to log in with a different browser. The expected result is that the login attempt is rejected for this IP.
  • If the login attempt is not rejected, we need to report this as bug.
    An example of a bug is here on the WP support pages.
