Limit Login Attempts
Receiving more Failed Login Attempt messages than usual (6 posts)

    Hello,

    For several weeks now I have noticed a considerable uptick in the number of Failed Login Attempts. Previously I would get 1 perhaps 2 per week. Now I am gettings 10 or so failed login notifications per day (but from different IP addresses).

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    That seems low compared to what I have been experiencing over the past few days. I seem to be getting about 50 lockouts per day from various IP's.

    Same here. Since this Tuesday a massive increase of login attempts.

    Anyone else?

    I'm seeing similar behavior across several sites. Looks like a botnet is getting itchy.

    In addition to Limit Login Attempt I installed WP Ban: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ban/

    This way I can block certain IPs completely.

    I just set mine for long lockout of 1 year. Maybe after a spell, that will cut down on the emails....

    I only did it because after having this plugin installed for years, I've never run afoul of it.
