    I was wondering about sending a window to the attacker with the message "you appear to be attempting a brute force attack on a website, if you continue, your ip address will be logged and reported" or something to that effect.

    This may slow down the attack as they may need to acknowledge the window, or it may scare off the offender...

    Of course, it may be totally ineffective as they may attack without a browser interface...but it was just an idea.

    I get the impression that most attacks are automated. Also, I don't want the attacker to know that we're on to them, so they'll end up wasting more time.

    I wanted to see some reports of failed logins beyond simply the email notifications of when attacks are in progress. I wrote a very simple plugin to display that information in my admin area. I'd be happy to give the code to Daniel if he is interested in adding that to the plugin and wanted to see how I approached the reports.

    Hi David:

    Sure, I'd love to see the reporting code. Thanks,

    Sorry I haven't had a chance to look at your code yet. Just plugged a significant hole which required a major rewrite of the plugin, and been very busy in general. I look forward to seeing it.
