    Hi,

    As title. I received 65 emails as follows (but all different IP addresses)
    - any idea what is going on?

    "A host, 27.159.238.30(you can check the host at http://ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/27.159.238.30) has been locked out of the WordPress site at http://gametwonk.com until Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 at 3:39:36 am UTC due to too many login attempts. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary."

    it could be a brute force attack, if your username and password are not easy to guess/ can be found in a dictionary , you are most probably safe.

    All of the IP addresses seem to be based in China. This is strange.

    Today I've had around 100 emails telling me the below IPs are being blocked:

    http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/27.159.232.131

    http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/110.89.47.228

    Hi,
    I'm getting the same error. I don't think it's just some attempt do attack my websites (tons of email per day); I think it may be related to 404 errors or some issues with other plugins, but I'm still on it.
    Let me know if you figure out something, thanks
