[resolved] Why am i still being hit by spammers on my renamed login page? (7 posts)

    So I have it set to send me email notifications if someone gets locked out of my website for using incorrect login info.

    After changing the name of my login page, I started getting hit by spammers after a few months.

    I changed the login name again, and after a few more months, I would get hit again by spammers.

    How are they able to access this renamed page?

    @Jdizzle66,
    It might be that the spammers are somehow getting through due to the bug we just recently fixed for the rename login page feature:

    The fix for this bug will be available in the next release of AIOWPS.

    is there a time frame for this fix?

    It is a pretty serious security risk, and would like to restore security to my site ASAP.
