    I run WP 3.8.1.

    Today i had two warnings (from a plugin) that several attemps have been made to login and the IPs were banned for a while.

    BUT the attempts have been made using two account named (for admin and one for editor).

    The Question is HOW the hacker (from Russian IP) knows my two usernamed. They are not posted anywhere.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    if you're hacked he can see info from your db, but are you sure your plugin works?

    I'm not hacked or anything.

    The hacker tried 10-20 times to login and he was locked out (his IP) for good.

    The question is HOW he knew the admin login names ?

    The plugin is working great.
