The WordPress Brute Force Attacks Continue

The brute force attack attempts that I referred to in this post have continued throughout the summer, and have picked up in the last week.

Just on this website, there were 4 lockouts today, 12 on September 23, 9 on the 22nd, 12 on the 21st, and many more the previous days. They’re also trying different combinations of user names based on my site (albanydig, banydigi, digitalser, etc) – of course they’re never going to guess it.

My next step will to be install WordFence to see how the country blocking works… Even though I know they’re not going to be able to hack the username and passwords, I’m sick of getting all of these emails!
