A website of someone I know was locked out of the WP admin area because of the Brute Force attack. They are using GoDaddy for hosting. GoDaddy said yesterday that they blocked the admin area from logging in. Now they are saying that that it is "up to WordPress to release our admin."
They haven't updated WP in ages and are using an old version. I'm not exactly sure which version.
Does anyone have any idea what this even means and how to get WP to release admin? It doesn't make any sense to me.
