My site suffered a brute force attack and now I cannot log in. LSS successfully blocked the attacker, however, the attacker used “admin” as the username and my username is “admin”. I now try to log in and the following happens:
1) Log in using my credentials and receive a wrong username error
2) Log in a second time using my credentials and get a 406 Not Acceptable
3) After a few minutes, I can get back to the wp-admin screen but end up in a loop of the above steps.
