Support » Plugin: Limit Login Attempts Reloaded » limit login and xmlrpc

    (@mike80222)


    Is there any detailed information available on how limit login reloaded interacts with xmlrpc? For example, if I have limit login set for a limit of n attempts, does that mean a hacker can try n user/pw pairs before getting blacklisted? Or does it mean they can make n attempts to use xmlrpc *each* of which could contain *many* user/pw pairs.

    If someone could clarify this for me I would greatly appreciate it.
    And if there’s a pointer to related information that would be great!

    Hello Mike,

    > if I have limit login set for a limit of n attempts, does that mean a hacker can try n user/pw pairs before getting blacklisted?

    This is correct. A hacker can try n user/pw pairs from the same IP before getting banned for the specified amount of time.
