      Later studing logs I found a very worring issue: students can access IP-protected quizzes on our site from any computer! I try it myself under student login and found I can do this too. Also, Moodle will stop show the messages about IP-protection for the teachers if they used a computer outside valid range. This is a disaster to the security policy of our university!

      IP address range used on our quizzes:,,
      Examples of addresses with student access from the logs: or
      The role for student is a standart Moodle role, without any redefinition.

      I can e-mail you login and password to access to one of our courses with such quizzes with a student role if you can't reproduce the bug.

      Please fix this with all possible speed. I already detected about 10 student's attempts to access protected quizzes (and save it's contents with feedback, they don't even bother to try to answer the questions).
