    We’ve had the same issue in the last week, and haven’t been able to identify the cause yet. Would love to know if anyone else has figured this one out.

    Do you also have Sucuri Security Plugin installed?

    If this is an issue with the Sucuri plugin, you should write here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/sucuri-scanner

    Seeing this as well. Often with a string in front of the password attempted like “snoppyFailedLoginFooter” or “megadeath666FailedLoginFooter”

    It is not an issue with Sucuri plugin. That exactly is its purpose. Someone is trying to brute force into your site.

    Ban that ip.

    Asked the same question for a recommendation from Sucuri on their plugin support. Got a feedback that it was certainly a brute force attack and was suggested to install a firewall.

    For the time being, I have changed the default login slug “wp-admin” to something more customised and these login notifications have reduced to none.

    Thanks guys for all your help.
