The IP looks legit. I checked at and it hasn't been blacklisted. So one guess (many possibilities) could be someone hacked the Website at that IP address and is using it to launch scripts to get into Word Press sites. Word Fence is a life saver. I don't like Word Press because I've experienced how vulnerable it can be from a security point of view and also drain bandwidth in virtual minutes if something goes wrong with themes or plugins (not worth the hassle for me), but if I really have to have a Word Press site, that would be the first plugin I would load. Well done!
