    Many hosts have experienced problems due to mass attacks and may have limited access to wp-admin and/or wp-login.php as a result. Your hosts may be one of them. Try contacting them about it.

    Do you know how I can get a new password and username?

    If your hosts have set this brute force login up, you will need to speak to them about it.

    That initial login has absolutely nothing to do with WordPress by default, so you'll need to ask your hosts for assistance with that.

    with regard to your WordPress login, try reviewing:
