    The plugin is working as it should. Stop reading the emails and you’ll feel better.

    Hi Steve, thanks for replying.

    I understand your point and it was exactly what I was behaving at beginning but it turns out at this month, logins attempts increased ridiculously. I can’t just ignore the fact that somebody is trying too hard. I’m getting close to 500 attempts a week. Obviously there’s something happening behind it. I believe it’d be better off reinforce security, but I got no idea in what way I could work that out.

    I have my own server that hosts about 6 sites. Periodically, I get ticked off and go through the logs and permanently block (via iptables) entire blocks of IP addresses. I’m not sure it add to the security much, but it makes me feel better.

    Anyhow, if you’re not a site that accepts a lot of international logins, there are plugins like “IP Geo Block” that let you block out entire countries for either seeing your site at all or trying to login.
