I had been running Login Security Solution 0.34.0 just fine for over a month now until today. I was tinkering with another plugin when Login Security Solution started preventing me from logging in to WordPress. As part of my work on this other plugin, I was logging out and in to WordPress a lot. Eventually, Login Security Solution started reporting a potential attack and it started forcing me to verify my identity by having me change my password. NO new password I would enter would be accepted because it was determined to be insecure, regardless of how long and mangled it actually was.
I managed to get back in to WordPress by logging in to the server via FTP and deleting the plugin directory. I know this isn't a clean approach, but it was effective.
So, I tried re-installing Login Security Solution and the installation went fine but as soon as I activated it, I was kicked out of the WordPress dashboard and presented with the page for me to enter a new password. Clearly, when I deleted the pluginn directory some files or settings got left behind.
First, how can I properly "clean up" Login Security Solution?
Second, how can I find out why Login Security Solution determined my site was under attack when ALL of my login attempts were successful?
