One of the sites I'm running for a client has been locked down for 24 (now down to 18hours). I called my hosting firm. They informed me the lockdown was implemented by WordPress and not by the hosting firm.
A) Is this true?
B) Is there anything that can be done to allow access to the Dashboard before the lock-out expires?
C) Is there are method of telling our webteam the cause of the lockout and how we can prevent future lock-downs?
We are currently running two security plug-ins, Limit Log-in Attempts and WordPress Firewall.
