This plugin Adds Crazy Additional Password Protection and Security to your blog.

Other Notes

Of course no plugin would ever be able to stop real hacker intent on taking over your blog, if you are connected to the net on a public line, of course you counít stop them. The people who are attacking the blogosphere are for the most part just playing. They "hack" code that "exploits" a "vulnerabiliity" in some open-source software like phpBB or WordPress. Those people actually help the community of open source software like WordPress by finding security issues and bringing them to light.. So who is this plugin built to stop? Itís built to stop the people who are trying all the time to maliciously crack into YOUR average blog. Why would someone want to hack an AVERAGE blog like mine or yours? Well the answer is that its not an actual group, entity, or person who is going to try hacking into your blog. Its an army of robots.. and they will never stop the attack.

So how do these robots attack us? What is their ammo? Their ammo is very specific knowledge of exploiting security holes in very specific software to "crack" your blog. Vulnerabilities are discovered all the time, mostly small ones, but those vulnerabiilties that are dangerous to those of us running WordPress 2.5 are LETHAL to those of us running 2.1.. just absolutely deadly. So These robots are programmed to do one thing and one thing only, try the exact same exploit that would work against 2.3 against every computer on the internet, as fast as they can and as anonymously as they can.. terrorizing the networks with these non-stop requests and slowing down the whole internet, which hopefully will start getting faster as more people use this plugin. Robots have no choice but to leave my servers alone. They understand what a 403 Forbidden means, to them it means take me off your list, the exploit Iím carrying is not compatible. But once again, this will not stop a hacker, this will stop 99.9% of the same bots that "hacked" 99.9% of the blogs.
