I had been getting locked out of my wp-admin due to mod_security being tripped, so I downloaded this plugin to hopefully help. It shows that while I’m logged in, there is a failed attempt to login to the username “admin” every 3 minutes. Funny thing is that I don’t use the username “admin” and the failed attempt is coming from my own IP address. Any idea what might be causing this? I have disabled all plugins except this one, and I have changed tried one of WordPress’s default themes in case a script was being called in it. However, I’m still having this issue of logins to the admin username (that i don’t have) occuring from my IP every 3 minutes.
