Ehhh. Those plugins are a big waste in my opinion I prefer to run Jetpack protect which was formally Brute Protect.

In terms of comparison of the plugin you made and the one listed by King Of Big Mac....

Your plugin uses a fairly basic function for the fraud protection. Essentially it queries
http://check.getipintel.net/
http://www.shroomery.org/ythan/proxy...p?ip=127.0.0.1

So your plugin is useful.

The one suggested above though comes with tools to restrict htaccess writing, an admin panel.

To each his own I prefer Jetpack protect + CloudFlare

Well thats not really unique. That's a built in WordPress function lol. You could make a widget to show the user's ip on a page with something like this.


// Display User IP in WordPress


function get_the_user_ip() {
if ( ! empty( $_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'] ) ) {
//check ip from share internet
$ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'];
} elseif ( ! empty( $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'] ) ) {
//to check ip is pass from proxy
$ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
} else {
$ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
}
return apply_filters( 'wpb_get_ip', $ip );
}

add_shortcode('show_user_ip', 'get_the_user_ip');


Then to show it all you need is this.

[show_user_ip]

The brute force does the same thing it takes the IP and checks it against their DB.

This will surely come in handy since I manage a WP site. Hopefully this can totally eliminate potential hacks.
