Support » Plugin: All In One WP Security & Firewall » Site Lockout Notification

  • Hello team,
    thanks for the great plugin!

    I have a problem with emails. I get like a hundred emails a day with the subject: ” Site Lockout Notification” and a message saying: “A lockdown event has occurred due to too many failed login attempts or invalid username:
    Username: admin
    IP Address: 104.223.170.108

    IP Range: 104.223.170.*

    Log into your site’s WordPress administration panel to see the duration of the lockout or to unlock the user.”

    Please help, the emails are just coming.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    Check to make sure the following feature Notify By Email: is not enabled if you don’t want to receive this email again. This feature is located under User Login -> Login Lockdown.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    the same problem occurs to me from time to time and again today.

    When I set up my website I chose a username for the admin which was not “admin” and is not easy to guess, so I am confident that I don´t have to worry about any login attempts with the username “admin”.

    But the attackers found out my admin´s username and I keep getting emails which tell me that the admin was locked out. Luckily this never was the case, I was always able to log in to my website despite getting these emails.

    Apparently there are a lot of bots in internet doing nothing else than trying to login to any wordpress websites.

    In which cases can I just switch off these emails and in which cases should I continue getting and checking them?

    Thank you!

    @organisator, can you start a new support thread.

    Thank you

    It seems that both of the sites are under automated XMLRPC attacks. Disabling email does not solve the problem.

    Check Under Firewall Tab and check the following to block the attack.

    Completely Block Access To XMLRPC:
