[resolved] Advice for a site experiencing hacking attempts (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I work for a human right's charity and I'm responsible for our website, which runs WordPress.

    Today, I've received many dozens of messages from the WordPress system.

    6 failed login attempts (2 lockout(s)) from IP: 109.251.226.89
    Last user attempted: Admin
    IP was blocked for 24 hours

    I don't know if this is an active attack on our site specifically, or whether it is just some bot probing our site along with many others.

    Does the community have any advice for steps to take now this is happening?
