Replies: 3

The PowerPress_PRT_incidence_response function is using the get_users function which loops through all users to check for 3 usernames from the recent compromise. This is causing high server usage on websites with a lot of users (such as a site looping through 18k users).

Perhaps it could be recoded to only find administrator users?
