    I'm running Login Security Solution 0.43.0 with WordPress 3.8 just fine. Today, I was testing some changes I made to another WordPress logging plugin I use and I purposely attempted to login to WordPress using bad login information to test my changes. As a result, Login Security Solution determined WordPress was under attack and sent out a "Possible Intrusion" email message, along with a message advising me to verify that I actually logged in to WordPress. I logged in a few times using a different browser than the one I used too verify my plugin changes.

    Anyway, now that I'm done with my tests, when I login to WordPress successfully, I'm still getting notifications that there might have been an intrusion, etc. Will I continue to get these notifications, indefinitely, or after some duration of time, will Login Security Solution determine the site isn't under attack and determine my account has not been compromised?

    Yeah, that happens when you "attack" yourself. :) As you probably figured out, LSS only uses data within the timeframe of our "How far back, in minutes, should login failures look for matching data?" setting.
