Protect your blog from login brute force attacks adding a captcha on login page of your site
This plugin does exactly what it says and has been effectively thwarting the ongoing brute force wp-login attacks.
I was being hit by the recent brute force attempts to login as admin. I have no user 'admin' but it was getting on my... well you know.
It's only been 24 hours but I don't as yet have a single failed login in that time. The first time in many weeks.
I will update this if (when) things change.
UPDATE (October 2013)
It's now been 6 months with no brute force attempts so I decided to switch the captcha off. 30 minutes (and over 300 failed 'admin' login attempts later) I switched it back on.
'admin' has again stopped trying to login.
Still works beautifully.
Plugin is working perfectly
