tinyShield works in three parts, a whitelist, a blacklist, and a permanent whitelist. Both the whitelist and blacklist are rotating, as a visitor hits your website their IP address is compared to our ever evolving blacklist to see if they are known to be producing malicious traffic. If the visitor is determined to be a known malicious IP address, we add that to your blacklist. If not, we add it to your whitelist. An IP address on either of these two list will be rotated off in 24 hours, to be re-checked upon their next attempt to connect to the site. The permanent whitelist is up to you to populate. These are IP addresses that you know to be good. Upon activation, we automatically add the IP address that you activate the plugin from to ensure you’re not locked out of the site. This list is never automatically purged but you can remove entries yourself.
