[Resolved] Site lockout and banning IPs

Viewing 4 replies - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)
  • It does look like the blocked IPs show up in the list if I look them up shortly after I am notified. I had the lockdown to be 60 mins. I now increased it to 24 hours. But I can clearly identify hackers that try to login using “admin” username and continuously trying every few minutes. I want to permanently ban/block these IPs.

    Any way to do this?

    Also may be a good idea to lock out anyone that tries to login using the username “admin” as none of my accounts use that…

    Hi @Strategerizer,
    Yes that’s right – the locked out IP addresses were unlocked after 60 minutes which is why you weren’t seeing them listed in the table.

    I can clearly identify hackers that try to login using “admin” username and continuously trying every few minutes. I want to permanently ban/block these IPs.
    Any way to do this?

    We will add the ability to block an address by clicking on a link in the table in a future release. At the moment you can block the appropriate address range by entering it in the blacklist settings – eg, 78.138.107.*

    Also may be a good idea to lock out anyone that tries to login using the username “admin” as none of my accounts use that

    Thanks for the suggestion and it sounds like a neat idea. We might consider adding something along those lines in future release.

    @peter – thanks for the quick feedback.

    Good reminder about the ability to enter those IPs on the Ban Users screen; I’ll do that. Looking forward to being able to have this done automatically from the various tables in the User Logins screens.

    Regarding the feature request, being able to block IPs based on admin defined usernames may be helpful. So I could enter a list to include admin, moderator, etc. (maybe have it pre-filled for newbs). Hey, I could even put in the username of some malicious ex-user I have banned so now if they try to log in, their IP gets blacklisted!

    Great plugin! (many thanks for your contribution)

    This should be solved now.
