What is to be done to set automatic blocking for all failed logins with invalid username “admin”?
I am surprised to see the frequency, which is several times in an hour, of these type of failed logins using “admin”. from different IPs. Is that true?

My site was hacked when wordfence security plugin was active. I took the necessary steps as given in codex and wordfence documentation. It is disappointing that your team did not respond when I submitted tickets on wordfence.com and at this plugin support after the site was hacked.
