I've recently noticed an increase in the number of attempted brute-force logins on wp sites I manage. Most, if not all, try username | admin | and then try passwords.
I don't have a user named admin (of course) and I've added security plugins/beefed up all pws.
I've been looking for a way, though, to instantly block any further login attempts from anyone trying to use |admin| as a user name? Like, one strike and out. I haven't come up with anything. Any thoughts or help? Thanks.
