    Your site is under a typical botnet attack. It’s not good, but from time to time it happens.

    Anyway, no worries. The advice in this situation is: enable Custom login URL, disable access to wp-login.php and disable redirect dashboard requests.

    Some bots like trying to log in via XML-RPC interface, so I recommend disabling it too.

    Thanks Gioni, all done like you recommend.

    One more question – in the traffic inspector I see requests like ‘xxxxxxx.com/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/’. Is this also something malicious?

    Thanks again!
