Stop User Enumeration

User Enumeration is a method hackers and scanners use to get your username. This plugin stops it.

Even if you are careful and set your blogging nickname differently from your login id, if you are using permalinks it only takes a few seconds to discover your real user name. This plugin stops user enumeration dead (like in use by WPSCAN), and additionally it will log an event in your system log so you can use (optionally) fail2ban to block the probing IP.
