    This plugin was provided by my host provider when I signed up with THOSTS in December 2017.

    Was considering deleting it, but, .. this is from it’s log as of today 10/10/2018

    IP Tried to log in as
    91.200.12.28 pigsoft.net (4 lockouts), b92.co.uk (2 lockouts)
    91.200.12.65 admin (1 lockout), b92.co.uk (1 lockout)
    91.200.12.104 pigsoft.net (1 lockout)
    91.200.12.157 b92.co.uk (2 lockouts)
    27.151.92.51 dyandoss27289 (1 lockout)
    86.49.188.134 admin (1 lockout)
    146.185.223.160 admin (1 lockout)
    211.245.31.111 michellz047609 (1 lockout)
    170.238.36.26 admin (1 lockout)
    91.200.12.56 b92.co.uk (4 lockouts)
    185.63.254.15 admin (1 lockout)
    91.200.12.35 b92.co.uk (5 lockouts), pigsoft.net (1 lockout)

    And so the list goes on, and one, and on, and on, ..

    China, Ukraine, France and the good old US of A to name just a few of the look up IPs I could be bothered to do. Script Jockies all of them, but they’re not using brute force attacks: especially from reading some of the login (name) attacks that the web boys are using. Later on in that list, are some of the people I’ve mentioned in my posts: who aren’t board members.

    Conclusion: This Plugin is worth it’s weight in gold.

    Thanks for reading, Jessica: Praise be the ORI.
