    Reply To: TCP request without logging in to website backend, by Jan Dembowski


    This has come from my workplace user log of internet usage, so I only have access to the log they give me.

    If that’s a proxy log then that’s fine. Some proxies work like this.

    1. User (you) connect to your site via your browser with https://your-url/. That’s normal.

    2. The web proxy gets the request. HTTPS is encrypted so from the proxy point of view it is TCP on port 443.

    3. The proxy performs man-in-the-middle decryption of traffic. Many companies do. That means they make an HTTPS connection for you and your HTTPS connection is actually with the proxy. It’s transparent to the user (you) but will create more logs that way.

    This is all normal in that situation. If the MITM decryption fails for whatever reason then the company still sees and logs it as tcp://yoursite/. When it works, then they also get the URL log too. That’s the https://yoursite/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php log.

    Yes, network security is a weird field. Oh boy, is it.
