[Resolved] How to ban IP from a country
Thank you for this AWESOME plug-in! Without it, my blog would be a complete chaos by now.
I am getting 4-5 attacks a day ave. from Egypt, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Turkey, Sweden, you name it. Blocking them one by one every day. I changed my password to 17 mixed characters and numbers, and feel a bit better. But, here is the problem.
The attack from Indonesia got all the usernames of my registered users (not allowed to get into admin) and trying them all. I do not have control over their password, so Scary! I am not techy at all, so please help me.
#1. How did they get the usernames of my registered people?
#2. How can I block the IP addresses of a certain country, like entire Indonesia?
#3. What is the best way to keep my blog safe against such attacks?
I would appreciate your help! The “-” or other range indicator available yet?
