Support » Plugin: Security-Protection » Great idea!!!

  • I started using the WP plugin “Stream” and monitored my sites via RSS.
    Then I looked into the plugin “WordFence”. And also tried “Rename wp-login.php”.

    I haven’t yet tried “Security-protection” but the idea is very good for right now.

    What a waste of energy, and creativity, all this hacking, trying to break into accounts. People spent days, weeks, months behind their computers to invent more nonsense.

    Thank you for his plugin 😉

    I think you should set the default to sending emails; this way admins get an idea that the plugin is working; then they can turn the emails off.

    Thank you very much for your feedback.

    I cannot set sending emails to default, because it could be very annoying and not everyone will know how to disable it.
    But you are right – every admin should know about the brute-force attacks and I am thinking how to show that there are attacks on hacking admin’s password. Probably I could add the counter of blocked brute-force attacks to the admin-bar or something similar.

    In your email you could add a link to a page, explaining how to disable the emails…

    I see now the trouble with too many emails… I just got 300 in a short time span.

    Some quick ideas:
    – keep track of sent emails
    – allow only 3 emails per 30 minutes
    – add an easy statistic to the email, like: 3,000 login attempts within the last 24 hours…

    Just some raw thought. 😉
