I already have “limit login attempts” installed along with “two factor login” but that doesn’t stop hackers from trying. They get logged out after three attempts but then a change of IP address and they try again. So far today in the 15 hours since midnight I’ve had 166 logouts on one of my sites. Each time I get an email advising me. I’ve just installed this plugin and it’s all stopped. How about that!!
I must confess I was concerned about the install just in case something went wrong but all is well.
Any author who is willing to offer their expertise free of any formal charge is to be commended. Thank you very much. I only think it’s a pity the author does not acknowledge and respond to the one or two people who ask for assistance but from me it’s five stars.
I guess it either works and gets five stars or it doesn’t and gets one star. Despite having changed my login address to something “unguessable” and known only to me, a hacker has found the login page. This is not the first time. I reported this in a support thread some while ago and the author claimed it was not possible. I can only say the author needs to look again as right now this plugin has a security flaw that somehow allows a hacker to penetrate it. Perhaps because it’s not been updated for some while and needs some further attention. Pity as it was doing so well.
