I wanted to bring this up to your attention.
In the last 2 weeks or so, the attackers have been using the “usernames” of the people who registered “through WP” relentlessly. That is in addition to attacking using a guessed “admin” username. So far, with the security plug-in I have installed to its full extent, my blog site has not been breached. (All-In-One WP Security & Firewall — An excellent plug-in!)
But, here is my concern . . . Are they getting the “usernames” through WP registering system? If so, no matter what I would do to secure my blog site, it would be in vain.
Is this a common thing that I am experiencing?
Is there anything else I could do to prevent this?
Thank you for your response.
