    This is a doublette of the post linked to below, since there is no activity there anymore but the problem is unsolved.

    I was told to wait for the next update of the plugin to offer a fix, but the problem remains!

    The following issue occurs:

    I get Site Lockout Notifications:

    A lockdown event has occurred due to too many failed login attempts or invalid username:
    Username: admin
    IP Address: 195.22.126.221
    
    IP Range: 195.22.126.*
    
    Log into your site's WordPress administration panel to see the duration of the lockout or to unlock the user.

    I add IP address and IP range to blacklist
    next day, I get another Notification, that the same IP tried to login
    Checking the htaccess file, the IP was written in there correctly:

    <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from 195.22.126.0/24
    Deny from 195.22.126.221
    ...
    <IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
    <RequireAll>
    Require all granted
    Require not ip 195.22.126.0/24
    Require not ip 195.22.126.221

    I saw in the forum some threads unsolved with similar issues – is there a solution at hand now?

    I shy away from buying country-blocking add-on etc. if I must fear it is not working properly…

    thx for support, brute force is increasing!

    For the sake of completeness, this is the relevant Apache version:
    2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4

    there is one IP trying to access multiple sites of mine and I can not lock it out!

    Username: admin
    IP Address: 193.194.69.155
    
    IP Range: 193.194.69.*
