How does the Bruteforce Login thing work? I usually log in (as admin) with no problem, but today was locked out with a Warning message and received an email about a bruteforce login attempt (my ip address). The message was an Alarm email that mentioned ” Variable ‘login && password’ of the POST method triggered the filter ‘wordpress login bruteforcing'”
Did I do something differently today that could have caused that message? I have not installed any plugins, and haven’t done anything differently (that I’m aware of) other than the normal logins during the day. I deleted the plugin and re-installed it, then was able to log in, but I’m wondering how I triggered the alarm and if there’s something I need to be aware of, to prevent triggering another alarm.
