[Defender] Defender Issue

This is more of a heads up that an issue I need immediate help with.
Had a HUGE mySQL drain on a large-ish cloud server. Support gave me this to work with:

Thank you for your patience. Please check this query:
After op SELECT option_value FROM wp3e_options WHERE option_name = 'wd_scan_se

Turns out that's a Defender issue. Deleted Defender plugin and the problem is gone.

I've never had this issue with Defender before and I run it on a TON of sites.

Well, back to WordFence for this particular site at least.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the report, I'm going to forward this to our developers for further investigation but I could use some more info if you don't mind :slight_smile:

    If I understand this correctly the above query was provided to you by your hosting support, is that right?
    Can you tell me if you had any symptoms or issues on your site while this was ongoing?

    Did your host perhaps provide you with some debug log that I could pass over to our devs for a checkup?

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
