1,000's WP Firewall notifications in my email account.

  1. I don't know what to do about this. The message says to "click here" in several places below, but there is nothing "clickable" in the actual email.

    WordPress Firewall has detected and blocked a potential attack!

    Web Page:
    Warning: URL may contain dangerous content!

    Offending IP: [ Get IP location ]

    Offending Parameter:
