Today I was warned by iTheme Security that were added 2 files:

wp -content / uploads / GeoIP.dat
wp / content / uploads / GeoIPv6.dat

Where did these come from and what is their purpose?

1 Answer 1


Those are Geo IP databases which tie IP addresses to countries. They probably came from some e-commerce plugin, or a cookie-law plugin, or some other country-specific tool.
