Limit Login Attempts

    In these days of bots and automatic password generation tools by hackers, my suggestion is that WordPress should provide some facility to limit login attempts by any user.

    Say this limit is set to 4 attempts, and if anyone exceeds that without correct login, then that user account would get locked.

    The unlock can only be done by the admin.

    (The only limitation is how to safeguard the admin login)

    There's a plugin for this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/limit-login-attempts/

    This security feature should be in core, not requiring a plugin
