    Yep, we are aware of this. If you use /your-site-url/wp-admin/ this does not occur. What is interesting is that this has some unexpected/unplanned benefits such as pre-screening/blocking Brute Force Login attacks so we are looking into a way of keeping the benefits, but getting rid of the initial error when using/accessing the /wp-login.php URL/link directly.

    A solution has been found to keep the benefit of pre-screening/blocking automated Brute Force Login attacks and eliminating the error. This will be released in BPS .48.9. Resolving.

    When are you releasing version .48.9? I am getting tired of seeing this error daily! 🙂

    BPS .48.9 tentative release date is between 7-15 to 7-16. If you would like to fix this now then here is the code you need to edit/change.

    /bulletproof-security/includes/login-security.php code line 3
    Change/edit this code to…

    if ( $BPSoptions['bps_login_security_OnOff'] == 'On') {
    
    ...this...
    
    if ( $BPSoptions['bps_login_security_OnOff'] == 'On' && isset( $_POST['wp-submit'] ) ) {

    /bulletproof-security/includes/login-security.php code line 480
    Change/edit this code to…

    if ( $BPSoptions['bps_login_security_OnOff'] == 'On') {
    
    ...this...
    
    if ( $BPSoptions['bps_login_security_OnOff'] == 'On' && isset( $_POST['wp-submit'] ) ) {

    So, why doesn’t Word.press fix this? It is 8-22-13, well after the 7-15 to 7-16, and I still get that error every time I try to login so I can comment on a blog post. What a pain!!!!!
