Unified Login Error Messages


If you log-in to your WordPress backend and enter the right username but a false
password WordPress shows the error message “ERROR: The password you entered for
the username admin is incorrect. Lost your password?” revealing that the username
“admin” is registered and a possible attacker can check passwords with this
username to gain access to the installation.
This plugin changes the error messages to “ERROR: Invalid user/password
combination.” if you enter a non-registered username and/or a false password and
makes it more difficult for an attacker to decypher your blog’s passwords.
