    HI Nhatrangart,

    Thanks for showing interest in our WordPress plugin.

    Yes. That means that someone from the IP 89.32.45.58 was trying to login to your WordPress for 2676 times using the admin username. It seems more like an automated brute force attack with such a high number of attempts.

    While I trust the above answers your query, do not hesitate to get in touch again should you have any further queries.

    Hi there,

    Here is more information about WordPress brute force attacks and how you can protect your WordPress from it:

    In very short, if you have a strong password and do not use the default username, you are already one step ahead.

    @nhatrangart:
    Try Limit Login Attempts plugin if you are on a shared hosting, or WordFence if you are on VPS/Dedicated.
    ;)
